Poppies

I have just been to England on a flying visit, and rejoiced in the lushness of my mother’s garden. In particular these beautiful poppies, huge blooms over a handspan across, with their single alien eye staring out from the centre of their vibrant petals! Poppies are my new favourite flower. I want to be surrounded by them!!

    • Mother planted these last year, literally threw seeds around, they have come into their own now!! She suspects I am only interested for dubious narcotic reasons!! I just think they are beautiful!!

  1. Just been to a garden centre and saw lots of poppies. There are a lot also growing along the sides of the roads. I believe that over in France they have fields of them just like the Dutch have fields of tulips in the Spring. I’m a daffodil man myself, but that’s probably down to being Welsh! Hope you had a good time here in the UK.
