    Last year I begged a few seedheads of a dark flowered poppy from a friend in Devon and scattered the ripe seed liberally around the garden. They must have loved the weather this spring and have grown enormous and there are some wonderful variations. It will be interesting to see whether they repeat the performance in the future – I find they tend to revert to something more anaemic – but in the meantime I’m loving the drama of these flowers. flowering poppy deep red poppy
