I had poppies in my flower bed this year for the first time ever. I took one seed pod from a pink poppy plant last fall, planted the seeds, and was rewarded with several beautiful flowering plants this summer. I was shocked and dismayed when tree squirrels ate every pod on the plants. I'll collect more pods, this time darker pink ones from my mother's and bright red ones growing next to the highway about 3 miles from my house (I've assigned my husband to pick the pods for me!). The poppy pod is a fascinating capsule, truly full of promise. I'm linking up with Nancy's Tuesday Muse.
