Floppy poppy

They were magnificent upright stems until the rains a few weeks back but that hasn’t diminished their elegance whilst flowering. The pale pink petals have lasted a lot longer than last year, and it’s been the longest display so far. The poppy was a gift from Nilani as she was dividing her plants. And five years on it has really taken to the garden. Going to divide it later in the year and think I should be able to get three or four plants – one has obviously been promised to Dee.

Visited Wakefield Place yesterday, which was beautiful. After a walk round the gardens we ventured into the walled garden, it was a delight – a proper cottage garden. They had two varieties, Patties Plum and Royal Wedding. The first was a gorgeous honey edged plum colour and the second was an ivory white. Going to see if I can find one of each, since poppies seem immune to S&S and thrive in Our Patch of Green! Purple, pink and white crepe-paper like flowers to start the summer – can’t wait!
