This past week these poppies have exploded in our back garden! It is so wonderful, all that colour! These are from seeds I have collected over the past few years. I spread them in the flower bed last spring but nothing came of them. I guess they needed a year in the ground first.
I love seeing the new batch of poppies each morning, by mid afternoon they have usually dropped. Ephemeral…
How is that even a real flower and not something from someone’s imagination?! So beautiful.
Last year we also spread a bag of mixed wild flower seeds but that only turned into weird grass which I had to pull out. This year we do seem to have some wild flowers, so I guess they needed to rest through the winter before flowering. If you think I know basically nothing about gardening, you would be right! :-D
Poppies are beautiful in all stages. Bud, flower, seed pod. I may actually be slightly obsessed. Maybe? :-)
Spotted this one on my walk with Blake yesterday morning. It is a sculpture. Perfection.
