Weeded early (well fairly early) this morning after a healthy, sorry, hearty bacon butty breakfast. It was cooler and I managed to weed half the veggie garden and a little bit of the front where the flowers are. We have these yellow poppies but the one that caught my eye this morning was ...
this lovely pink poppy. It's huge, probably about 8 inches across.
Another pink flower was this peony.
Both those pinks are in my current blanket.
Did you know - you can get 6 different arrangements from 3 colours?
One last flower I particularly like is this black aquilegia which I think is called Aquilegia vulgaris var. stellata Black Barlow.
The Poppy Flower Fairy is not in my book but here is the poem for the Red Poppy.
