    Oooh I need to take more chances on growing poppies. They are spectacular & fun looking! Oh and I thought Superbells didn’t do very well with wet feet so are encouraged to plant in containers rather then in the ground? hmm… I hope yours are thriving along! Love your garden 🙂

    I love the poppies! Annuals give so much punch to the garden! It is always so fun to come outside and see new blooms.

    looks great! Where are you finding Proven Winner plants? I’ve seen a few at HD in Emeryville but not much. I’m particularly wanting to buy the lemon coral sedum! Thanks!
