Okay, I’m stumped – but before I get to the gardening question, wanted to share a tidbit: this morning a nice little image declaring I’ve received 1,337 likes appeared. Just how did they come up with that number? If anyone knows the story behind this intriguing number, feel free to share in the comments!
Now on to the real reason why I logged in to post –
Earlier, I shared what beautiful plants appeared when I got side-tracked and didn’t get an area weeded in time – Which has been identified as a poppy.
The poppies have all died back and some even look completely done – so I’m left wondering – is this a perennial poppy that I just need to be careful about what I do around it, but can go ahead and clean this area out, newspaper and mulch around where the plants were?
Or is it a self-seeding annual, that newspaper and mulch will ruin any chances for plants next year?
I’ve perused quite a few gardening sites and can’t find a picture of one that looks just like mine – so if anyone knows an answer or a way for me to determine a course of action, it would be much appreciated!
Here’s pictures of what the starting-to and died back plants look like:
Back to Ye Olde Weeding! 🙂
