Thanks Neellan,
Thanks meadowland, I like them! I thought I had moved this one last year but it's come back!

5 Jun, 2012

 

Absolutely lovely, and such a vibrant colour. I have some tiny seedlings in my greenhouse which I hope are going to turn into this eventually - fingers crossed!

5 Jun, 2012

 

Oh, could have given you one of these, sorry I didn't know you liked them. It's not quite as red as the picture shows.

Thanks Alex, I know they are not universally popular but I can't help liking them.

5 Jun, 2012

 

I liked absolutely everything you had in your garden, Sticki - specially the squirrels!

5 Jun, 2012

 

I'm still waiting for my white one to bloom.

Wonderful Sticki!!! We bought some of these big things - hope they open out like this :))))))

thank you cinderella

btw is it you that grows streps?? i have been taking off the dead flowers on my plant ~ is that the right thing to do?

5 Jun, 2012

 

Yes it is me. Yes that is the right thing to do Sticki, unless you want seed, and it looks better too doesnt it.

5 Jun, 2012

 

yes, thanks cinderella, i dont like seeing the half dead ones on it, might keep one or two though ~ just to try!!!!

thank you

Me too but not had much luck with poppies. :(

5 Jun, 2012

 

would you like me to send you some? or seeds?

5 Jun, 2012

 

Well that would be lovely...not sure they would grow tho..Have planted seeds before and had one single poppy then they didnt come back. Also planted seeds in the front garden along with other wild flowers, but have only gotten french marigolds and big daisies and lupins :( Id love some if you dont mind..try try try again!

5 Jun, 2012

Hi! Looks like the mystery poppy in my back yard that decided to pop yesterday - perhaps bursting out with patriotic pride :-) No idea what type it is or how it got in my garden but happy to enjoy it. Was surprised at the texture of the petals, quite crinkly, and seems to open and close so providing some entertainment for me :-D

5 Jun, 2012

 

thanks surreylad,

hello julie, sorry i dont know the name of this poppy, it might have come from seed i was given or collected!! they are surprisingly crinkly when they pop open!

5 Jun, 2012

 

Fantastic photo, Sticky, absolutely perfect :)

5 Jun, 2012

 

oh, thank you Gee!! poppies wont always look the right way will they ~ for once this one did!! its rained ever since so im glad i got the picture!!

5 Jun, 2012

 

There is one growing outside the hedge on the country line I take to go to work. Single petals, huge single flower - it looks so unusual there, lol. Gets me saying to it - what are you doing here? lol.
Lovely picture Sticki:)

6 Jun, 2012

 

I love those little ones that grow in the fields and along the verges, so pretty

Thanks kasy.

6 Jun, 2012

 

Your trademark :))

6 Jun, 2012

 

it is a bit, daylily!! cant help liking them.

6 Jun, 2012

 

Its a beautiful photo Sticki. It sounds to me like you did a root cutting there. Carol Klein always remarks about how easy it is to do root cuttings on poppies, because when you try to move them you leave a bit of root behind and then lo and behold they pop up again the next year. Did the original plant survive in the place you moved it to?

7 Jun, 2012

 

thanks PL, i think it did but i think this one is redder than before which im very pleased about

7 Jun, 2012

 

Good for you Sticki. Have a word with Carol about it when you next see her! lol

I love poppies, and you never know where they are going to appear! My mum gave me seeds from hers last year, I sprinkled some in the borders and they are popping up ALL OVER the garden! I don't really know how!
