Do you remember that scene in the Wizard of Oz where Dorothy is running through a beautiful field of poppies with the Tin Man, Cowardly Lion and the Scarecrow?
I always loved that scene, mainly because of the flowers. Even though the poppies have had a spell put on them by the Wicked Witch so that Dorothy falls asleep, they are still beautiful! Glenda saves the day with a little snowfall!
I love this time of the year in my garden because I have my own field of poppies!
My favorite spring blooming flower! Princess Victoria Louise (Papaver orientale)
Fortunately my field of poppies is not poisonous! Mine are just beautiful!
Mine even have a few purple Japanese Iris mixed in.
Elsewhere in the garden the peonies and roses are beginning to pop!
And the snowball bush is just finishing up.
Ohhhh, this is just the beginning of so many beautiful things to come!
What’s blooming in your garden right now?
