Thanks Mr. Fothergill

 Clematis
 Lillies

 Amidst all my beautiful flowers and "busy ness"
Mr Fothergill sent me an early Christmas Present.
 Lots and lots of seeds to trial.  This is great, as I am planning on helping out with the Environmental Group at school next year, and this could be heaps of fun to raise them with the children.
 I love to encourage young gardeners.
 This morning when I went out for my garden inspection, I was very excited to see these DARK poppies in flower.  I had to rush back inside and get my camera.  I had bought the frilly ones which flowered, but some other seeds must have slipped into the mix to my delight!

It was lucky that I photographed them, as it is windy today and by the time I got back from Saturday morning jobs, most of the petals had blown off.  I hope the seeds will find a place ready for next year.

Ohh Annie your garden looks better and better every time you post photos. I'm green with envy especially as my is starting to crisp up with the hot weather. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

I love it that you were happy to have glimpsed the beauty of the poppy and a little hope and trust that a seed will set and reward you again next year. Ahh the patience of a gardener. Good luck with all the other seeds. Your climate is much more forgiving than up here, perfect really.

Am I seeing a seed packet of multi-colored carrots, or is that something else? I am intrigued.
