Week 9 – Amber Perkins

Posted: May 30, 2011 in Amber Perkins, Week 09

AAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!! Vacation…

I was a scheduled slacker over the past 2 weeks. My 25th reunion with Saudi Aramco Brats was held in Dallas. While I was away, my poppies presented themselves. This plant has a dear spot in my heart. She has been mowed down by careless landscapers, transplanted when I moved, and pulled petal from petal by neighborhood children. She has produced 2 or 3 blossoms a year when she was able to produce at all. This year? Well, my sweet put forth 12 blossoms and she’s as pretty as… well… a poppy! I share with you the art of perennial gardening.
