Poppies Blooming in the Flower bed!

I hope May is treating you well!

I have been enjoying looking at our Bread seed Poppies blooming in the flower bed each morning.

The weather is cool in the morning and gets hotter during the day, so the Poppies only last about one day, then new ones have been appearing!

I planted 4 varieties this year - the seeds were all originally from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. I saved some, and planted some from the seeds I had saved and one new packet variety from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds

(Be sure to scroll down after the text to see the photos!)

They are all Breadseed poppies - all edible seeds that can be used for baking. I planted extra so I'll have more to use and save.

The Hungarian Blue Breadseed poppies and the Florist Pepperbox poppies bloomed first. There was one surprise in the Florist Pepper box patches - some Red and white striped Poppies! I will be sure to save some seeds from them!

Now the Purple Peony and Giant Rattle poppies are blooming also. The bees are enjoying them early in the morning. Also, spotted some Hummingbirds tasting them!

They were all planted in the Autumn - late October.
