Where the wind doth blow
This year they seemed to have disappeared altogether. A bit sad we thought.
We had saved seeds from previous years and sprinkled them in the garden to no avail.
At the back of our property we have an area we call the 'secret gully' and Linda spotted a magnificent specimen of this lovely poppy plant.
Definitely self seeded, the poppy must have wanted to claim this secluded landscape all to itself.
Mount Tauhara in the distance and the Waikato River in the middle what better place for the poppy plant to grow.
