The poppies mingle with the salvias, larkspur, California poppies, and ox-eye daisies.
I am always in awe of the amazing detail of God's creation.
The poppies are going to seed all too quickly,
but even the large seed pods add interesting texture to the spring perennial bed.
Did you know that poppies are a symbol of remembrance?

Every year when the poppies bloom, I remember my sweet friend Mary Nell who gave me my first poppy seeds. They are a gift that keeps on giving.
Sadly there won't be many poppies blooming for the garden tour in a couple weeks, but as they fade away, the summer perennials will be picking up the slack.
I've been busy getting my garden ready for the tour. Stay tuned....I'll be posting about a little backyard "bling" I've added to my garden this spring.
I hope you enjoyed the poppies as much as I do every year!
