Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Poppy Seeds Sprouting Under Milk Bottle Cloches

I'm doing a happy little sprout dance, care to join me?

I direct sowed these in the bed about three weeks ago, under cloches made out of recycled plastic milk bottles, and berry containers. They're annuals, so I should have flowers this year. It won't be long now.


  1. Hooray! I love poppies. Just think what they'll be in a few months!

  2. Oh yes, I'lldance with ya. Keep us posted.

  3. Holding thumbs these babies grow into sturdy plants and reward you with masses of their glorious flowers! Can't wait to see photographs of them in full bloom :)

  4. I love poppies (dance, dance!) Are they the California type or a different species?

  5. Can you see me... happy dance going on. :)
    It is a miracle and I am continually amazed at how one little seed becomes so extraordinary.

  6. Always an exciting week if little babies pop out;-). We just sowed some poppy seeds this month. Hopefully will sprout like yours.


Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
