Sleeping Among the Poppies

By bennysplace

Rising from the ground in spring with its droopy fuzzy head, the corn poppy begins to work its magic. Seeds from last year’s crop remained silent through the winter and now this simple yet mysterious flower will capture the gardener’s imagination once again.

This happens all the time, but I am not Jill.
Jill has been critterOLOGIST.
Then I came along and called myself critterGARDEN and caused a whole lot of confusion!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... yes! I am so sorry! :)

Well, I like your screen name. I pride myself in having a critter garden. All things are welcome except voles, moles, mosquitoes, wasps (only if nesting), certain beetles but most of the other 'pests' are taken care of when the good stuff moves in.

At any rate, I thank you kindly for reading my post and for thanking all of our veterans.

Wishing you the very best of all things.

Take care!
Benny

No offense to me, Benny.
I always fear that Jill might mind tho, that others think I'm her!
Hilarious!

Laughing. Nahhh.. Jill's pretty awesome. At any rate, nice to meet another critter in the community.

Take good care and have a blessed rest of your day.
