Poppies Galore

Sorry for all my garden spam, but there’s so much going on in the garden this year. It’s finally kicking off big time and it couldn’t make me more happy. Each time I go outside something has popped or something is blooming, it’s insane. All this intense waiting is finally paying off, I love it.

The most noteworthy thing about gardeners is that they are always optimistic, always enterprising, and never satisfied. They always look forward to doing something better than they have ever done before.

– Vita Sackville-West

Today the poppies went nuts. I nicked seeds from a local garden as I was in awe with the size, structure and colour of the above poppies. They are a beautiful soft pink and have a burgundy inside, they are amazing and they grow next to my kitchen door. I’ve planted seedlings two years ago, last year I had just the odd flower but this year I have a massive bush full of them.

Than there’s the bit of plot in the front garden that I’ve scattered with poppyseeds last year. That plot also didn’t book much success the first year but right now it’s so darling. I just mixed a bunch of seeds and scattered them all over this plot, covered it with a tin layer of soil and that’s it. I even mowed it a few times and I think because of that, it’s looking so good now.

And all the lovely bees!

    wow! It’s really lovely! And what I find amazing is that your poppies are a bit different in shape from the ones we have in Greece.
