Did you Know that Curly Grass blooms? and A Poppy in September?

I bought another big container. I needed one and this was 70% off, so the price was right.

I already have two of this pattern in a brown color and about half this size.

I added some money plant to my curly grass container. I like to stick the money plant in blah containers to perk them up a bit for fall. It gives me a little something different to look at.
I was surprised to see blooms on the curly grass (I can't remember the name of the plant). The blooms just seem to sprout out horizontally along the grass. The blooms are teeny tiny and you almost miss them unless you look closely. As you can see they aren't much to look at anyway.
The Oriental lilies I moved Wednesday are now blooming. Now they are something to enjoy looking at.

Have you ever seen an Oriental poppy bloom in September? It looks I am going to have one! This poppy already bloomed at the proper time. I have never seen this happen before.
I think this is the white one. I can't wait until next year to see how well these new poppies do. They already have twice as much foliage as they had this spring, so I am hoping to get a lot of blooms. If you remember, each plant had only one bloom this year and half of the plants did not bloom at all. I ordered two purple poppies and neither of them bloomed.

Perhaps next year...........


  1. I had a lot of catching up to do on your site. I thought you were leaving for a few das!
    Your flowers are always so beautiful.

  2. Neat flowers! I didn't get any of the curly grass this year, but it's fun to look at and I didn't know it bloomed. Can't wait to see the poppy! And your arrangement is cool!

  3. Smart ideal to make postings look real while your gone. Never tell Bloggerland you are leaving or so says my hubby!

  4. I just had a oriental poppy bloom, it has just open today. About a month ago I had one bloom but it was not formed correctly this one is small but very pretty.
    I have had been growing oriental poppies for 15 years and have never had this before.
