I just have to share my flowers with you. My favorite flower is the poppy. I grew these from seeds. I planted them and they didn't come for a year. Then they came up, but didn't bloom for two years. Finally, one flower bloomed last spring and this year. I will have six! The irises are another favorite of mine. They came from a dear friend who didn't like them and let me have them. He passed away less than a year later and now I have a sweet reminder of this sweet, sweet man year after year.
