Adventure 4 - Plant PoppiesThursday, April 25, 2013
To remember Anzac Day, today's adventure was planting poppies. Anzac Day conveniently falls at just the right time to get poppies ready for the distant spring. A punnet of red, spotted lady bird poppies and blousey shirley poppies are now stretching their toes in our front garden. E helped digging, watering.
We picked up some purple and black poppy seeds from the lovely Quince Tree shop. We sprinkled these over last.
I'm used to wet Easters that let me weed the garden, plant bulbs and tuck everything in for the winter. This year, the drought has meant we had to wait a little longer. On the other hand, it gave us a nice way to remember Anzac day, both today and as the flowers lift their nodding heads.
