For a couple of weeks these will be the Stars of the garden.
I am rather fond of the buds, I think they look funny. I love the fuzzy texture.
Then from the Fuzzy Buds burst enormous, 'In Your Face' Poppies.
This is the first and the only one in full bloom so far. Isn't it gorgeous. I took this photograph in fairly overcast light and I have not altered it in any way. These Poppies brighten up the Garden regardless of what the weather is doing.
These Yellow Poppies bloomed today for the first time too, they are wild and have just decided they like it here.
