    You have a nice assortment of poppies, there, Nell! I have some mystery plants that are looking more like poppies to me. Time will tell!

    This primer is a good thing. I printed it out, if only for the pictures of the different foliage. I am sure I have pulled all my baby poppies before.Happy Easter!
