Favourite Flower Friday

Opium poppy Papaver somniferum

These handsome poppies have just about finished flowering for the year in my garden. I scatter their seeds all over the place, but they are fickle and never come up when and where they are expected to.

This one popped up last year in the front garden but unfortunately no sign of it since…double-pink-opium-poppy

But at least I finally have managed to get my favourite black paeony poppy to flower.black paeony poppy
