One Last Poppy

When I posted the Poppy Primer, I didn't have a good pic of my lone Iceland Poppy (Papaver nudicale). I think of Iceland Poppies of coming in citrus colors, so I call this one 'Grapefruit' color.

The local Big Box store had them in pots today, I think a little late for planting out, since they are so sensitive to the heat. Many of the pots were already wilted beyond repair.

My lone Iceland Poppy is growing with 'Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow' viola that I grew from seed, and two volunteers, a solid purple, and a yellow and purple Johnny-jump-up viola.


I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
