I bought a new poppy two years ago and had hoped to be sharing lovely photos of it with you... but last year it seemed to be struggling and this year- no sign of it at all so I guess I've lost it. So you'll have to indulge me and put up with the same ones again... same plants, different year!
The raindrops almost make the bloom look "polka-dotted"...
(Is that a word?)
