It's that time of year where more and more Iceland Poppies are appearing in gardens around my neighborhood.

What HAPPY poppies! I needed this color - it's pretty colorless in our area and SO COLD!! Nice mosaic!

I love Iceland Poppies only it will be a few months before they bloom up this way. Daffodils and Tulips and Crocus are all coming up though.
Your mosaic is very fetching. MB

The Iceland poppies are so delicate and prettier than the robust red that pop up in my garden from goodness knows where?
Happy MM.

A great flower - I love how cleanly their pod drops away when they bloom.

Beautiful poppies! I have loved poppies every since I first saw them at Lake Louise, in Canada, when I was a little girl... Many years ago.( I hope the poppies still bloom there.)

Great photograph of the poppies, a good variety of colours. Jackie in UK.

Love the flower pictures! I wonder why they are called Iceland poppies? Are they from there?

Seeing your pictures o poppies, I feel like taking them, too. One of my neighbors grow poppies. I will go and check if they are in bloom or not.
