I didn't plant any annual flowers this spring....

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
.....   My heart wasn't into it as I knew there would be on-going work on our back deck all summer and  they'd no doubt either take a beating from being moved around, or be eaten by the deer as per usual.  I did however buy and plant a few perennials - an Engelman's Ivy to grow up our arbor as well as this White Oriental (Royal Wedding) Poppy.   It bloomed today.  I've grown oriental poppies before that were the size of dinner plates.  This one however is much smaller approximating the size of a  tea cup saucer.

oh ... between the deer and the buns, I am lucky to have a single bloom, been using the repellent which has worked pretty well since our summer has been wicked hot and dry... I so understand you not planting, I planted just a few... the poppy is lovely.. x

Isn't the Internet a wonderful place. I met Kimberly Mooore at a networking event In Charlotte. I went to her webpage. You were on her blog list and here I am. Just had to comment on the beautiful poppy!
