I have been waiting for this beauty to open for a few days now...
Meconopsis or Himalayan blue poppy
(I hope that's right anyhow :o)
...I kept popping out to tend to it
protect it from slugs and frost
and to gently stroke its very bristly stem
and two days ago
there she was in all her magical, mystical beauty
she kind of glows
sorry about the gazillion photos
Isn't she a stunner?
I have three but as yet there are no buds on the other two
I keep going to check on her
I think I am under a spell....
Yesterday I made a big decision
To enjoy the garden more
we spend loads of time out there 'doing stuff'
busy busy busy
but I'd like to spend more time out there 'NOT doing stuff'
just enjoying it
I splashed out and ordered one of these
I felt VERY frivolous but did check with Mr Sweet first!
I have another plan coming together too
more on that next time
Thank you so much for all of your sweet messages on my last post
I am feeling much brighter...thank you x
lots of love
