The Council should be ashamed! Roger you are my hero - this looks very pretty. I love wild flowers
In Flanders Fields the Poppies grew.
Amazing, grown a post box from a packet of poppy seeds.
Opium poppies ?
What a good idea Roger....the colours are wonderful and brightens up the place for Summer....cheers!!
The poopys look very nice Roger but you should have weeded the flags.
better than a weed covered wilderness
Excellent. Great photo, and a great thing to do for your local community and wildlife. Many thanks.
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.
Looks marvellous, very natural looking!
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
Well done Roger, you are obviously a man of vision!
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.
