More Garden Goodies

 

I do get to enjoy a couple more pretties of my flowers before I leave tomorrow. You've seen this a couple of times before, but it blooms pretty consistently. This is the salmon-colored poppy that was a gift from Marie.

Near at hand is the Japanese painted fern. Much fuller now than a few weeks ago, and looking good.

The smile-producing surprise of the day is one of my red poppies that bloomed this year. I used to have 3 or 4 healthy plants. But the lilac hedge took over the area that used to be sunny, and the poppies didn't like it. Last year I moved a remnant up near where the house is now, but it's still too tiny to bloom. But deep in the shade, a ray of sun must have hit this spot and I got a red one!

Tomorrow: the traditional packing pictures. Stay tuned!

Pretty stuff. I like that fern. Guess that poppy is a survivor

Lovely. I've found unplanted poppies popping up all over my veg path here. Sdaly, not this year though.

Unexpected surprises are always fun, if they're good like this one.
