Vegetable Garden 2011 – #1 — 7 Comments

  1. Wow, Marta! That poppy is amazing! How big is the blossom?

    I understand your frustration with the weather. I think we have finally turned the corner here into warmer weather, but only in the past couple of weeks. I feel like we were robbed of what is normally the loveliest time of year here.

  2. It is just a tad bit smaller than an oriental poppy. I was curious – I took a ruler out and measured it – it is 3″ across. I pulled up the tag – it is Mecenopsis ‘Lingholm’. There are a couple more buds to come on.

  3. The blue poppy’s color is absolutely amazing! Glad it came out okay in photos — have problems with purple flowers… they often come out too pale in my photos.

  4. Striking color blue of your poppy. Ah, I remember the year’s past your sprouts coming along in the spring and then seeing the ‘fruits’ of your labor in the summer! Nothing quite like fresh and your own veges.

  5. Hi Marta, that first photo is gorgeous. We had a wierd spring too. Longer than usual for LA, but I think the heat is coming soon. Hope to send some your way. 🙂

    Have a wonderful week.

  6. I just keep staring at that glorious poppy.

    We’ve had a dreadful Spring as well. This week it’ll be rainy and in the 50’s every day. Blech. I did put in my lettuce, the seedlings are just sitting there sulking.
