poppies



from spikey alien-like pods burst



glimpses of pinkness



a mass of petals



each one more tissue paper pink than the last

  8. I LOVE poppies, I planted loads last year, and not a single one grew. But I do have plant killing fingers, so it's not surprising!!!

  9. Lovely pics. I didn't get any poppies in my garden this year. Too wet maybe?

  20. I just discovered your blog through Dragonfly, and these photos are so beautiful! I was just admiring the poppies on one of the other allotment plots yesterday. I definitely think we need to grow some on our plot now! K x

    What papery petals...and a gorgeous shade of pink. I have a few poppies out in the garden now...most of them are an orangey red.
