phoenix poppies

well, beggars can't be choosers so i've decided that if i can't remove all the stuff my neighbors keep dumping into the shared alley behind our houses, i can at least beautify it! and doesn't it look gorgeous? okay, there's some work to do and even since this pic i've noticed that drainage is a big bad issue but...into this wheelbarrow i've dumped some mushroom compost and 2 packets of poppies and wildflowers. i'm hoping that come spring something beautiful will rise from the ashes. the larger vision is that the same plants will selfseed the whole quarter mile corridor of decorative tellys and beer cans.
if anyone can recommend plants (from seed) that i could throw on the ground and which would probably grow just about anywhere i would be grateful. meanwhile my small and secret mission continues....
