I probably had a post with the exact same title last year as well... oh well, that's what it is, a poppy fence. My poppy fence.
Last year I had a sea of poppies in my front garden. They re-seeded, but I pulled out a lot of them because they were crowding out other plants. However, there were still quite a lot left - until I found out that the deer came into my yard eating the poppies. Happy deer. Not so happy me.
Consequently there are way less poppies blooming this year than I had thought, and I'm still pulling them when I see what the deer have left. Obviously, poppies are a delicious specialty for them (ha, you wonder why...). But - those poppies that are left are real stunners and everybody seems to love them (beside the deer, I mean).
This year I have mostly red ones and these beautiful red and pink ones. I'm sure that there will be more poppy images on my blog in the next few weeks.
I am linking again with Theresa's Good Fences over at the Run-A-Round-Ranch.
It's less than a month until Mother's Day.
Why not send a handmade card this year?
