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.
