Flowers of plot and garden

  1. Oh my, Sue---very pretty. I love the peach poppies---they are a staple in my garden. Funny, though, that each spring I KNOW there will pop up one flaming orange one. A sea of peach-with one garish show-off. Ah well, Mother Nature has her fun with me!
    Your iris and columbine are also quite beautiful. Enjoy

    1. Maybe you can tweak Mother Nature, Sue and move the show-off to somewhere more appropriate.

  2. I enjoyed the poppies - not a color we see every day. That tulip looks like it would be friends with my oputia cactus.

  4. The poppies are such a gorgeous colour. We had some on the plot which popped up in the potato bed like that but the ones I have in the garden are red.

    1. I have some annual poppies at pop up (appropriate name!) on the plot, Jo. These are perennials. It's hard to believe that they came from such tiny seeds.

  5. I agree with David. How did you get Calendulas to flower so early? mine are about 6" tall still. BTW, the dark-coloured Aquilegia reminds me very much of one that David sent me seeds of.

    1. The calendula is self sown, Mark so the timing is all it's own work. It's in the pear bed on the plot.

  6. Only today I was thinking that my poppies are very behind and you have just confirmed it for me. I can't even find a single bud amongst the rather seemingly unusually prolific leaves at the moment. Maybe all is not well with my poppies?
    Everything is looking so lovely and bright with you!

    1. Strangely the ones in the photo are on the plot, Deborah but the 'same' ones in the garden are not yet flowering.
