Poppies are one of my favourite flowers but I’ve not had much success growing them in my garden. However, this year I decided I would try again and bought a plant. There were a few buds on it and I was really hoping that I would be able to nurture it and keep it alive. Success! It wasn’t until there was only one flower left on it that I realised I hadn’t taken a photo, so this is the last bloom, and it is on its way out I think.
I think the centre looks as though it has been made from some kind of sugared jelly sweet!
I kept some of the seed heads, which I will use next year and hope for more success.
