My opinion of poppies sways back and forth in the wind - just like they do. They are 'stop-the-car' gorgeous when they are in full bloom, but they have such a short bloom time and are so wildly invasive. Clearly I have the non-hybrid kind. I could swear I bought these at a plant nursery. I even have a plastic plant tag with a name and picture on it....hmmm. The invasive part is super annoying - they are taking over the flower bed they are planted in. I have had an inner argument with myself for years whether or not to keep these poppies. So after careful thought, I had a recent digging frenzy and removed as many of these poppies as I could find and threw them in the field. I probably missed some roots, so they will no doubt be back next year for me to enjoy for one week and then complain about some more. And do more digging...
