I remember poppies like these when I was growing up in California. They remind me so much of our home in Fairfield. I was just a kid but some images stick in my head, as poppies and geraniums were everywhere, as I recall.
Summer starts this week, but it seems like it's been here for quite awhile already. Late spring and early summer are my favorite time of the year. The pansies I potted on my front porch are getting leggy, and it's probably time to switch them out for summertime flowers, like heliotrope, petunias, lavender, and more geraniums, which seem to do well here.
I've got a doctor's appointment this afternoon so between now and then, I think I'll head to the local flower shop and snag some colorful plants. Now that I've written my usual brief Tuesday post, I'm ready to go!
We have a steady light rain here this morning. It's a good day for plant shopping and transplanting, at least under cover. :-) Have fun with your flowers.ReplyDelete
We have dry weather here today. We've had more than our share of rain as of late.ReplyDelete
LOVE that explosion of poppies.ReplyDelete
Good luck at the doctor's surgery - and enjoy your day. And yes, I am up well before first light (which is at least an hour away now) and a midday lunch is not too early for me.
Beautiful show of poppies DJan, they look like summer !ReplyDelete
Heavy rain for us all week, tornado season begins :(
Hope you were able to find some colorful flowers to enjoy.
Good luck at the doctor.ReplyDelete
Enjoy the gardening.
You have busy days all the time.ReplyDelete
I imagine you will have a very good report from your doctor. You live such a healthy lifestyle. I do love those colorful poppies.ReplyDelete
Those are nice flowers. Good luck with the doctor.ReplyDelete
Summer hasn't even thought about arriving here yet!ReplyDelete
Flowers...eye candy! Too bad those beautiful pansies get that way in the heat. They're definitely something for Spring & Fall only. California poppies were in my folks' garden...in Colorado, too.ReplyDelete
Hoping the drs. appt. is just a routine check-up.
My pansies are getting leggy too. But, other things are starting to unfold. I know you'll have an action packed summer - always on the move!ReplyDelete
Tuesday I was on a plane heading back from UK. My daughter Ed wanted us badly to be there for the first one-off our second grandchild so we went. The weather was cool and rainy unlike earlier this spring when it was awesome. Since we are back it seems not much better here. Let us hope with today’s start of summer it will get nicer.ReplyDelete
You can pinch back those leggy Pansies:)ReplyDelete
