Poppies

Few years back in the friendship garden I threw some poppy seeds around. Each year in early spring we have the odd plant grow and enjoy a small showing of poppies.

This year has been the opposite. The area where Amy parked her car all the time while living at home, isn't used much now, poppy plants are booming all over this area.





In between weeds are dozens of little poppy plants and in the middle is this lovely big plant. The soil conditions must be just spot on for so many seeds to germinate.






This photo was taken yesterday morning on the way into the city. Flowers don't last longer than a day. Percy is giving you as idea of the size of the bush.



Love the delicacy of this flower.

Until next time....hoo roo
