Giving Credit where Credit is Due

Flanders Poppies:
I forgot to tell you where I found the link and ordering information for the Flanders Poppy seeds.

Karen Heniger @karen_in_va formerly from Connecticut posted the photo, ordering information, and planting instructions on Instagram as her Memorial Day Post. Click on her link and make sure you view all three photos. Thanks, Karen ! ! ! She is one of my favorite frequent posters on Instagram and a long-time follower of my blog.

I was happy to find the photo below on Instagram. This is how I am going to plant my poppy seeds.

Could anything be more beautiful than this stunning bed of red poppies, growing at Amanda Cutter Brooks' Fairgreen Farm in Oxfordshire? I think not. 
Happy Friday. Happy June. Now summer can officially begin. xo

Are these seeds actually from Flanders Fields?

Catherine -- Probably not, but it is the same variety. I saw some seeds at the garden center called POPPY (FLANDERS/CORN) American Legion Papover rhoeas. Heirloom. The world's most popular ornamental poppy. A symbol of wartime sacrifice, grown for its striking beauty and remembrance.
xo, Rosemary

Thank you Rosemary for all that information. OX

Oh that Karen, she is a delight. I follow her on IG but didn't see her poppy post, so frustrating how the algorithm is controlled by the powers that be which means often you miss the postings you would most like to see.

Can't wait to do this.
