Bread Poppies, Papaever Somniferum

The gardener can provide the frame, set up an easel, and sketch the pattern, but as time marches on, must constantly step aside and hand over the brush to Nature. This can be agony, but it can also be ecstasy. As the gardener looks over Nature's shoulder, watching the canvas change, wonderful things are happening.
An apparently insignificant patch of earth in a far corner suddenly assumes dramtaic importance, because Nature has decided to bring the bread poppies bursting into bloom in a gesture that demands an audience.
Now is the time to plant bread poppies, papaever somniferum.
So simple to do to get such a big impact!
