Red ... the color of passion. These oriental poppies come up every May and shout out of the garden like no other plant. They simmer and glow in the sun, and sizzle even during cloudy weather.
Here's the group of them in my front garden.
Other red plants are swiss chard.. yummy! Brightens up any vegetable dish.
A poppy getting ready to explode out of its bud!
Poppies behind the geraniums
Fuchsia buds hanging daintily from red stems.
New growth on my "Mirthful" Rose
A last red bloom on the walflowers
And one last look at the poppy again, with a dusting of black "soot" on its fiery petals.
