In the garden: Red poppies

I believe I complained about my all-orange poppies, and wondered where the red ones were. Well, here's the first, and it's humongous! (As usual, hard to photograph because it captures any breeze so effectively.) And when I say humongous:

See the height? (Unfortunately, it's late in the day, so the orange poppies have already closed). This is a good wildflower mix. Not only is there a sequence of blossoming in time, there's a sequence in space; these red poppies form a canopy.

Even better, the "Shady Mix" wildflowers are beginning to flower too....

Well, Lambert, we may disagree about water feature sizes, but not about poppies! That is one magnificent specimen. Love the wildflowers.
