When we bought our place back in 1977, there must have been some red poppies seeds in the garden. They popped up and every year since they continue to re-seed and come up like weeds. I like to have them scattered throughout the garden even though they sometimes crowd out some of what I actually plant. Whenever I weed the garden, I leave a lot of the tiny poppy plants to grow. The photo shows the result of those allowances.
You can spot some of them growing in my garden in my painting “Garden”.
