  1. Poppy, my favorite summer flower …. never seen a blue niether. I can image you have a bursting garden … with your deep passion for flowers. Beautiful entry, A-C. Enjoy the fantastic summer day we just woken up too. *smile

    • This poppy grows up in the Himalayas – and the colour is really its own. It’s the national flower of Bhutan. In the early 20th C a Himalayan expedition, led by legendary mountaineer George Leigh Mallory, discovered the plant on their try for the top of Mount Everest. The flowers won great admiration and fame when introduced to the outside world. They are very difficult to grow, so I have never tried even if I would so much have liked to…I know my limits there. Bill Terry published his ”gardening memoir”, Blue Heaven, http://meconopsis.ca/ about this magical plant.

  2. Does one assume that the first frame, that incredible blue poppy, has been pot-produced ? – for I have never laid eyes on a blue poppy, not in all my years !

    • It’s for real, this colour. The poppy is only ”poppy like” its latin name says. It was found in the Himalayas about 1920 something.

  3. I’m totally in awe of the blue poppy. Superb. Looks like you allium is a slightly different kind than I am used to. These are all marvelous photos.
