A friend of mine thinks it's unusual, since her poppies run amok in her garden, that mine stay in place, but I'm sure it's just the variety.
I'm actually a bit scared to upset them in any way. As hardy as the plant seems to be, the blooms look so delicate and only last for a scarce couple of days. Is that why I love them so much? Because of their fragility?
Bold. Strong. Exquisite and alien, the poppy never fails to impress.
