I wrote last week that once the lilac blooms peaked, the peonies were next.

I'm still waiting for the peonies - they'll be blooming soon - but neck and neck with those flowers, it turns out, are the poppies.

Y'all might know I love myself some poppies. My wedding bouquet included them, thanks to my mom, and that red-orange color showed up often around our wedding. I'm so drawn to that vibrant color that I was surprised, when I was looking in the big poppy patch in my grandma's garden on Sunday, to be just as captivated by the flowers before they bloomed. (The raindrops might have helped.)

I really wish I could see that poppy patch in full bloom. Instead, I'll be keeping an eye out for these flowers closer to home.
