Hehe, the anticipation is part of the game, its just the missing them that hurts! I've been waiting and anticipating since I sowed the tiny seeds last spring lol :P I would also have liked to see how they suit where they are in the garden. Oh well, *fingers crossed!*

I found this video on youtube a while back; its of this garden which is just entirely flowers... they have loads of different kinds of oriental poppies in there. Iused to just gape open-mouthed as I watched it :P
