One of the really great benefits of Ed's beautifully prepared planting beds is that plants can easily self seed. My favorite double pink poppies are the champion when it comes to reseeding. We have been getting some rain and the poppies have been growing. Today I spent a lot of time in the garden pulling out poppies, buckets of poppies. Now is the time I wonder why I let so many plants self seed. I do it because I don't wish to lose these plants.Later when the flowers bloom, I will be glad I did. The Stone Wall Garden would not be the same without these pink poppies. Too many is better than too few. Of course there are still more poppies to pull!
