When I woke up this morning I was in no rush to get out of bed to start my day until I remembered my poppies. I came downstairs expectantly and was duly rewarded with a most beautiful sight and one which I never tire of looking forward to each year. My poppies in full bloom.
I named this blog Poppyposts in tribute to the pleasure that I get from these flowers and each year they get bigger and better, more stunning and more vibrant. I never fail to be amazed by their beauty and extravagance and the contrasting colours of orange and purple bring an exotic touch to what is otherwise a typical english cottage garden.
And here are the 2011 show-stoppers.
