These are some corn poppies from the field at the farm. They seem to do really well on the wet clay parts of central ny where we are, and so I've sewn a ton of them in some of our new beds. This is a dream flower, one which you have to grow yourself. They are far to fragile to ship, and probably have a vase life of 1 day. I cut them, shot them and then packed up for the city so I don't know how long they lasted. Painted the bathroom deep green/blue. Got some hardware on the soaking tub. Things are happening fast now in the house, it's exciting.

We're so excited for you guys. feels almost like you're having a baby or something (!). so much new life and endless discoveries. and of course challenges. we're thinking of you, so much! and your bathtub. we have a painful, empty space where ours is to go.

Beautiful flowers. Pretty insightful post. Never thought that it was this simple after all. I had spent a good deal of my time looking for someone to explain this subject clearly and you’re the only one that ever did that. Keep it up
