I had intended to have this as my Macro Monday post for yesterday. But I was late and didn't get it posted in time. So I thought I would put it on today. I love these gorgeous poppies.
To be honest, I don't know the variety.
They have grown in Steffi's garden in Kent since she and Paul bought the house about 16 years ago.
I loved the richness of the plum and aubergine colours in the centre with the little bit of sage green...
Such a striking plant and every bit as beautiful when the petals fall and the poppy seed heads mature.
