Good morning, friends,

Our Iceland poppies are on their last legs and are spreading their
progeny around with wild abandon. Does anyone know at what season one
may expect the seeds to sprout? We planted the poppies in November and
they began blooming in January, and are still blooming, although, since
we let them go to seed, they are much less "floriferous" at the
moment....good thing, since the roses between which we interplanted them
when the roses were cut back to about a foot, are in high gear, actually
finishing their first flush of blooming this year. What a glory to
behold the few remaining Iceland poppies blooming along with our
multicolored roses!

Good growing to you all!
