Pretty pictures: Papaver orientale

Not my own plants; this is the garden of the same person who had the yellow and blue Iris that I posted on Sunday. Regrettably, none of the photos accurately convey how many of them there were, all doing the visual equivalent of screaming their heads off. The display is kinda wonderful, though the one big failing of this particular kind of Papaver is how brief the blooming period is. Is someone working on breeding some that bloom longer? Or are there already some that bloom longer that y'all just haven't told me about?

Gorgeous! I've planted poppy seeds the last two springs and haven't seen a single sprout. Your photos make me miss the Midwest again (still in a good way).
