For the Love of Poppies~

A symbol of gods and nations, of sleep and death, 
of peace and rebirth—poppies have captured the popular 
imagination and fancy of humans since the earliest days of civilization, and perhaps before. Used by the ancients as a powerful remedy for malaise and pain, the poppy's medical applications remain vital to this day. And of course, we loved those charming little seeds in our cakes and muffins. But for more than any of these reasons, humans worship those bold, bodacious blooms for the color and drama they lend to our gardens.

How sweet our poppies are~
