Poppy Days

Self-seeded poppies can grow like weeds, if you don’t like them, Or else, like me, you find they are impossible to pull up because you want to see what the flower will be — single, double, semi-double, fringed, semi-double-fringed, red, pink, white, red and white.

Wilding poppies, sweet peas on a bird cage, bean poles, and, in the foreground, walking onions.

Cut off the tall poppy, and the plant will grow bushy and produce more flowers. Or leave the tall poppy to finish flowering, yank it, throw it on the compost heap.

Same flower…

…different light.
