"Muy bonita, la flor!" Sorry, I couldn't resist slipping in a few Spanish words! It means "The flower is very pretty!"

Unfortunately, unless you have it under cover, it will most likely die sometime in the next couple of days as we are forecast winds straight off the North Pole for the coming week, getting to its coldest on Thursday, day & night.

Balcony It is growing in one of the borders...... but it is hardy. and will appear in the Spring..... can't say I am looking forward to this cold snap!!

I imagined it would probably be hardy. Does it self-seed a lot? I'd never heard of a Spanish Poppy before.

My wife was just telling me that when she was a girl in Cuenca she & her sister often used to pick Poppies to take home!

She'd never seen this Spanish poppy before either!
