oriental poppies

Back home in Ireland, my garden had changed from a spring garden to an early summer one. Oriental poppies welcomed me the evening I returned, overwhelmingly bright red!

The poppies were simply glowing.

I'll post more flowers soon, there are lupins and columbine blooming like crazy.

Hi Salix Tree, welcome back home. We missed you. Your poppies are divine and can't wait to see the lupins and columbine. Thanks so much for the ID on the lamb's lettuce, that is great news, since it has been allowed to seed and will now be everywhere. It gets a little larger than really fits in the garden, but it will now be left to grow rather than pulled as a weed, within reason of course. Your mother's garden plot is lovely. The lavender is so lush and full and the little stone path is a sweet hardscape to the view from above. I do wish you could visit my garden too. Maybe someday I will be able to visit Ireland, also. Never say never!
