Thanks girls...:0))
Mine too now Pam, I've spent a lot of today tying up plants after all the blustery wind..:((
Thanks Dd and Tet, I think it depends on your soil Tet, Mums is deep peach and yet it was originally from my plant, my soil here isn't too good.
Yes it's Poppy time again Linda, come on sun, it IS midsummer!!

Ha ha Ba, I remember you having one San, we were racing to post the first pic weren't we....they do grow large and very floppy, but I've loved this one this year.
I like the way they pop the bud covers off during the night Amy, there you are with more open flowers the next day...:)). Well fancy that Lori, are you going to get one? I wonder if they come true from seed...I could send you a seed head??
