Something just popped up in my crowded front flower bed. I think it is a poppy. I have never planted poppies....so where did it come from? Maybe it came from bird droppings. It is small in size and just kind of meanders through what I have planted there. The leaves are sort of ferny. It is so cute...guess I'll leave it there...unless someone tells me that it is invasive. I check this garden daily...how did I miss it?
I noticed that the mum plants have arrived at our grocery. A sign of fall for sure. They look so bright and pretty. I ordered some hardy mums this year. I have had trouble with mums in the past. They don't come back the next year. I suppose that the grocery store mums are for one season only. They aren't my favorite flower, but give good color during the fall. Remember those huge mum corsages back in the 50's? Those were the days when your boyfriend bought one for you at the homecoming game ...to wear to the dance later.
