Shirley Poppy (Sweet Pea Seeds Give-Away Winners)

Early ~Mid November is always the best blooming season for poppy in our garden.
I think I sowed some poppy seeds earlier than it ideally should be this year.
I did get earlier blooms in October but it wasn't pretty.
Because the flower bud can't proper fully blossom. 
Maybe I should try sowing in between May-June.
I hope these sweet pea seeds will make a home in these 3 gardeners lovely garden:
Hope I can get your address ladies (my email:
The colour of this poppy is really bloody red.
No editing colour here.
It is that red.
White poppy so delicate to touch.
A pink multi-layer poppy.
A blushing one?
Wearing a different kind of red frill skirt.
Have a nice weekend!
