In the garden: Red poppies
I believe I complained about my all-orange poppies, and wondered where the red ones were. Well, here's the first, and it's humongous! (As usual, hard to photograph because it captures any breeze so effectively.) And when I say humongous:
See the height? (Unfortunately, it's late in the day, so the orange poppies have already closed). This is a good wildflower mix. Not only is there a sequence of blossoming in time, there's a sequence in space; these red poppies form a canopy.
Even better, the "Shady Mix" wildflowers are beginning to flower too....
