It Blooms! Success with Poppies

By Missinghenrymitchell

I’ve been on Poppy Watch for a week.

Poppy bud, May 12

Poppy bud, May 12

Every day I watched as the bud got fatter, taller, and rose higher above the foliage. Then finally, yesterday morning I opened the blinds in the living room and beheld my own personal miracle:

Alas, I have no idea whether this is the Hungarian blue breadseed poppy or ‘Lauren’s Grape.’ I planted both, and they seem to look very similar. If anyone out there can make a definitive identification, please let me know.

Excuse me, please, while I go celebrate.
