• An Unexpected but Welcome Arrival

    I’ve been watching this opium poppy growing at the front of the border for several weeks, debating whether I should remove it as it was self-sown and not really in the right place. I’m so glad I didn’t, instead of the usual mauve-pink colour, these gorgeous frilly white flowers are my reward for staying my hand. I will definitely be saving seed from it.
