A new Flower in My Bed!

Threw some seeds in the dirt this spring - and this is what grew!  Connie told me early on they were a "poppy", but when it flowered, I wasn't so sure!  But they are poppies!  So pretty I think!
They are little fluff balls!  So soft!
I love 'em!
Pink Feathers Papaver Poppies
The only pink in my August garden!
Says they're an annual, so I'll save some seed pods in case nothing comes up next spring.
When I looked on line, there are pink and white, and other varieties.  Think I'll have to do some seed ordering for next year.  These grew with no trouble!  I got the seed from a girlfriend, and after planting I wasn't sure what I'd planted where!  These grew, but the other seeds didn't.

Those are SOOOO pretty!
We are in a terrible drought and everything is dying. Today my hydrangeas were all wilted and I am hoping they can survive and come again next year...For now, I'm enjoying your beautiful blooms.
