Poppy love

I love all types of poppies. Their delicate and ancient looks fascinate me. I've planted some Iceland poppies in the herb garden and I'm checking on them everyday. 
One of the most popular references of poppies would have to be in The Wizard  of Oz. The Wicked Witch of the West casts a spell to make Dorothy and co. fall asleep. What a classic hint towards the more medicinal uses of poppies in a children's book.
The Wizard of Oz 1900.
