Poppies – my favourite early summer flower
by Wendy Syddall
Just a quick post about my favourite flower of this season the poppy. Theses are specifically the papaver – the perennial plant although I love the annuals and self sowen one too.
This year I bought a new red one to replace one that died last year. That is the first picture. The flowers are like paper and don’t last long but are lovely all the same and an occasionally flower twice in the year if cut back and the weather is right!
The others are purple, orange, peach and white. All beautiful plants and so easy to look after.
