Flower of the Day – September 26, 2017 – Poppy #2

The second installment of Poppy Week here on Lovewillbringustogether’s Weblog. 🙂

As mentioned, the bees love my poppies about as much as i do! I’ve seen 3 bees trying to all fit on the one flower.

If you look carefully you can see a white tip to the black ‘cross’ formed around the centre Stamen on the petals. This is another variety to the normal plain glossy black cross and yesterday’s all white one.

    • It’s from my garden! I got some seeds from a neighbour (in deep suburbia) about 8 years ago and they self-seed and come back year after year so i guess this one is ‘domesticated’ ( or Semi- ?) 😉

      I’ll email you some shots i took today –
      Tuesdays pic is from the same patch! 🙂

  1. I’ve planted some wild iris seedlings i grew from seeds in the winter we’ve just had but they are probably not going to grow to flowering stage this year. I’m more hopeful for next spring. Mine are from a white one with lilac striping! 🙂

    Y’gotta love typo’s… i have a brilliant image of Mr Gilead, in a suit, covered in wild iris growing everywhere! 😉
