Look at what I did!

I grew a flower from a teeny tiny little seed. I planted poppies last summer (pretty late in the season, I KNOW) and this little guy finally sprouted out of the dirt and rewarded me.

Can you see the other bud that is also ready to open? I'm so excited. My attempts at flowers are not a total fail. Even some of the popsicle flowers are coming back from last year. Thank goodness for the hostas I planted. They're troopers. Wish I could say the same for the coneflowers.


  1. Yay! I agree, it feels so rewarding to see your plants grow after all of your hard work and worry.

  2. Oooh, a freaking gopher ate my poor coneflower. I was peeved.

    It's so rewarding when those flowers pop up, but mine seem to die more often than not.

  3. My new neighbor complimented my garden last week. I almost hugged her, because, whaaaaah? ME grow ANYTHING worthy of comment?!

    Makes you feel like a good person, doesn't it? :)


Thanks for stopping by!
