The poppy seeds finally germinated, the delicate little stalks grew taller, some stayed so tiny. The poppy flowers are in their glory right now.These are not Opium Poppies, but might be Shirley Poppies or Angel Wings, summer mixed. Stems range in height from a mere 5 cm, to around 50cm. Waving in the breeze, so pretty. I wonder always how nature can be so very clever,,tiny black seeds, 3 years old, thrown onto the soil, and many weeks later, beautiful flowers .
Quotation of the day from Amy Lowell
“Every castle of the air sleeps in the fine black grains, and there are seeds for every romance, or light whiff of a dream for a summer night”
