It looks delicious!
Never put on toast, but it is delicious in a border!
Such a lovely poppy and a gorgeous shot. I wish she would die a bit more elegantly though.
But they are all like that, aren’t they? Let’s not hold against dear Patty.
Wasn’t sure if ur was a poppy or a peony when I saw it. What a gorgeously sumptuous colour.
She is sumptious. I had her in Ireland and, when we moved, Nick went back because I couldn’t face it. He had strict instructions to bring ‘Patty’s Plum’, no matter what. He didn’t know what he was looking for (don’t blame him). Last year the poppy was replanted with a newly purchased plant but all the flower buds rotted in the rain. So this year I’m in something like seventh heaven that I actually have flowers.
She looks very plummy in this picture and darker than usual
Probably because she’s slightly shaded. One gets frightened of the sun here, including dear Pattty!
What a regal color! Oriental poppies are one of my favorite flowers but I’ve never been able to get them to grow in my garden!
That’s sad … but we all have things we can’t grow, don’t we?
Oh Patty is such a sumptuous a beauty and to think that she originated from a compost heap at the end of the garden! I keep checking my heap but no such luck.
I had no idea – you have educated me tonight! Thanks so much! Must google for more.
