FOTD – October 4 – Poppy Week! – Day 6

Welcome to Day 6 of Poppy Week!

For all of this week so far i’ve mainly been showing individual examples of the many variations my red Papaver rhoeas poppies have evolved since my first batch were planted around 10 years ago. Today I’m having a 2 for 1 deal: 🙂

lovewillbringustogether - Poppies day 6-3A scarlet and a white poppy cover the two extremes of my poppy colour variation. 🙂

lovewillbringustogether - Poppies day 6-2The bright red poppy has only a single ‘bar’ of the black cross (with a thin white lip at the tips!) while it’s less-filled friend has only the white tips of the cross with no black at all? 🙂

lovewillbringustogether - Poppies day 6-4A beautiful salmon-pink poppy stands over it’s red cousin who has the gold-tipped stamen and not the usual black ones.

lovewillbringustogether - Poppies day 6-5A pair of half red/half white poppies basking in the morning sun. 🙂

lovewillbringustogether - Poppies day 6-6These glorious remembrance poppy twins paired up over the smaller poppy that is being paid very close attention by a bee at it’s centre. 🙂


All photos are the actual shading with the only editing done being close cropping for sharper definition.


More variations in Day 7 tomorrow. 🙂
