Poppies Blooming Today

 These are annual poppies and should be planted in the late fall for spring bloom. I mix mine with a little sand as the seed are too small to handle alone. Then broadcast in a prepared area. Do not cover the seed. Or alternatively, just let the seed fall in the garden when they are mature and come up wherever they will.
They mature and pass before the early summer flowers come on so they do not take space from later flowers.
These poppies are a bright red and the stamens are dark, almost black. The blue in these pictues is an anomaly of the photograph.
