Iceland Poppies have been blooming here for months. Except for mine. This is the first bloom I've had this season. For some reason I have a hard time with these annuals that seems so easy for everyone else! I can't tell you how many times over the years I have planted them and they have never bloomed. They grow in the island at the gas station, in front of the market and in every other front yard in the area, but for me they are elusive. I refuse to give up and I plant them every year. This may be the first and last bloom I get, but it is so charming I will just keep trying.
