  1. Wow! Those poppies are beautiful. I can’t seem to get any to grow for me, although I do see them around here.

    I’ve tried poppies before but they didn’t like me and escaped! Your pale pink is beautiful. My grandma had the brightest red ones. The ones I tried were blue. Had no idea the color range available. I always thought they were just red!

    • I don’t even remember where I got this beauty, but it lives fairly close to our driveway and sits under tons of snow for months at a time. But, every spring it comes back to life, and I look at those amazing blooms and just think what a wonder Mother Nature is in providing perennials for us to enjoy year after year. 🙂

    • It is Catmint (Nepeta Faassenii). It is a lovely perennial with beautiful flue flowers that stays nice all season. Cut them back to ground level in the fall and they pop right back up in the spring. I have them lining one driveway bed and around other spots as well. Thanks for asking.
