November is the month for poppies in New Zealand and we have them in adundance in our garden at the moment.

I have been waitinng for the red poppies to burst out of their buds and this week it has been happening and there's masses of buds yet, so lots more enjoyment to come.

The fern beyond the poppies makes a lovely backdrop. It is in its third year and with lots of rain in the early spring it is doing really well.

The cream poppies volunteered themselves in parts of our garden this year. I transfered several to the front garden and they have blossomed and blossomed during November - the rich creamy yellow of the petals is just a pleasure to behold.
