Papaver Somniferum/ SOOC

Annual poppies blooming now in my gardens

I don't plant these poppies - local birds do. They pop up singly or in groups in most of my gardens, blooming for a week or two every July.

Oooohhhh!! You have single poppies!! I did not even know they came in singles!! I have only seen doubles! But I finally have one growing this year! You would think I would have had hundreds by now, the way I have planted seeds, but they have just never taken before.

I wish those birds would fly over here and drop some seeds.

Birds as gardeners : I like that so much. Magnificent maple tree photo at your skywatch. P.S. Curious : did you recognize your photo in my skywatch painting ?

Oh my this is beautiful!. I didn't know birds planted these..I've never seen birds near mine. My Poppies are all gone. Mostly the rain destroyed them, BUT I have pictures to refresh my memories of their wonderful colors.
Thanks for backing me up on those Lily names. I've got your back too LOL

Beautiful shot, I have so much trouble with red, it glares on me every time.

It's nice of the birds to give you such beautiful color. So far our birds haven't trated us as well.

Gorgeous flowers! I wish some birds would drop by my place and drop some seeds.
