Ready to pop

At last year's Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden plant sale I purchased a poppy plant. It was a bit of a whim, I admit, but I've always loved the bold shocking color and graphic nature of red Oriental poppies as well as their delicate, paper-thin petals. Plus, I have garden beds with full sun throughout the day - a perfect place for poppies to thrive.

And just this last week my poppy plant transitioned from looking like a maniacal weed to this fun, funky plant - with two buds just ready to pop.
