Notes about living and gardening somewhere down in Texas
Poppies in July in Texas? Remarkable!
Pretty pic Linda. Hope you have a wonderful day!
Very pretty(-: Thats where I want to be...in a pool of fresh water! Its going to be hot again today...how long till Fall? I don't want Summer to end but I am sick of the 100+ temperatures!
Refreshing! Did they grow there?
This is cool. Is this in your yard?
Nola, they are water poppies! :)Thanks Susie--I hope your day was good too!I know Cindee--don't we wish spring could stay here forever. I hate summer to end because I love blooms so much, but the heat gets so bad. Luckily we have had some rain this week and the highs are in low 90's.Tina, I was cleaning out the pond (carefully watching for a snake!) :) and just thought I would toss a couple of poppies in the birdbath to see what would happen. And viola'!! Birdbath poppies!mr--yes, it's a very lonely birdbath now as it stands without a tree behind it! )
How pretty, I've never heard of water poppies. Thanks for the thoughts & prayers Linda. It's been a better week so far for me. :)
Yeah, my poppies bit the dust many moons ago. How'd you grow poppies this late? Anyway, they're a pretty sight in the bird bath!Brenda
Racquel, you find the water poppies at the pond stores. I was surprised they did so well in the birdbath! (glad things are better this week!) :)Brenda, sending you an email...
Where to I find water poppies? I really need water poppies for my water garden.
Debbi--I wish you would just come get some of mine! I need to pull some out, in fact, I had to pull some yesterday and just throw them away, and I HATE to do that. I bought the plants (2) at Creative Water Gardens here in Garland. They have a great selection of pond plants if you are interested. It's on Garland Road. Let me know if you ever think you might be in this area--I would love to get some of these poppies to you.
