Aug 18 – I planted these poppies, called Ladybirds, in my flower bed.  I also had a few other types of poppies, but I planted late.  The Ladybirds were the only ones that came up, and I only got a couple of them.  Every single one made me smile, though.

I’ll plant more next year, earlier in the season.  Evidently, the seeds need some cold in order to get going.  Poppies are a favorite of mine.
