The actions of a guerrilla gardener by Roger (Nikon Coolpix 6200)
A council owned garden in Pool St. Poolstock which isn't maintained so I planted it with poppy seeds in winter.

The Council should be ashamed! Roger you are my hero - this looks very pretty. I love wild flowers

In Flanders Fields the Poppies grew.

The poopys look very nice Roger but you should have weeded the flags.

in our little park where I go every morning, there are 2 beds which have been planted with wild flower seeds, they look lovely, especially the poppies. yes, I always think of "Flanders Fields" when I see a lot of poppies.

Good for you Roger..it looks very pretty..you're obviously a person that does something constructive rather than moan about it..again..good on you.

Loveley picture - I have tried to grow them - without success - which poppies did you use?

Adds a little colour to an otherwise neglected space.

Hi Dave, I just used seeds collected from poppies I saw last year of different sorts, but they are picky about where they grow
Comment by Ellen M on 11th July 2013 at 16:23
Well done Roger, you are obviously a man of vision!
Comment by Ray Dwyer on 11th July 2013 at 18:33
Excellent Roger. What a lovely display. How much in terms of time & money would it have cost the coucil?.
Course they would have to call meetings & get cost estimates first then allocate manpower then..........

What a glorious picture Roger.....you definately have "greenfingers".This should put the council to shame.What beautiful colours in the poppies.
