|Shirley poppies and their seed pods
|Shirley poppy seedpod, still green
These Shirley poppies look great along the driveway, and this green seed pod (right) will soon be ready for harvesting. Shirley poppy seedheads are really neat--they'll turn brown and form tiny holes under the little plate on the top (you can sort of see them forming in this photo.) When the pods are dry and ready, you can shake the seeds out of the holes just like a tiny pepper shaker. We collect lots of these seeds to share, but there are always plenty that reseed themselves.
