Ornamental Allegro Poppy

Last fall I purchased two poppy plants and they came up this spring and I have been waiting and checking everyday for a pod to open.  YEAH !! It happened yesterday, and I have plenty more pods to open.

Orange scarlet.

This one is on the verge!!

Poppies always remind me of the Wizard Of Oz being a Kansas girl. How all the characters took a deep sleep in the poppies.

Poppies are used to symbolize peace, death and sleep. They grew in the fields where trench war was occurring in WWI.

Hoping everyone is enjoying planting and reaping the rewards.

Linking with PINK SATURDAY
