Flower of the Day – October 7, 2017 – Pastel Poppy

(An apology to anyone who tried to open my orchid nasturtium pic yesterday (6 Oct) – WordPress kindly removed the coding when i added a caption to the pic. I have fixed it now if you’d like to check it out in it’s full glory! 🙂 )

I started out with just a couple of red poppies from a neighbour in my garden a few years back.

They have ‘evolved’ and morphed over the years into an astonishing number of different colours and varieties all by themselves.

From deep red to this rare pale pastel pink/orange/white – the two shots are of the same flower taken with some 15 hours apart, the first is early morning the second late afternoon.

Cee’s Flower of the Day – October 7, 2017 – Orange Tulips



    • That’s possible – but the weird thing is the vast majority of my poppies are the standard deep red with a black cross in the middle! In the same basic soil type i have seen individual plants come up with bright orangey/scarlet, bright ‘barbie’ pink, peach/pink, pure white and a funny faded white/lilac/purple! And my little ‘wild’ poppies are bright orange?

      Whatever it is – soil or mutation – that is one beautiful colour as you rightly noted! 🙂
