Colour matching


I took this picture this afternoon, what colour coordination is that then, on one of my poppy seed heads. Nature at it's best I truly think.

    My poppies are not out yet but yours are past. What part of the country are you in?

    Thank you everyone, Hogweed I live in the south of Kent, and I still have poppies yet to open, this one just decided to open early and then sadly died when we had the heavy rain full. Hopefully the others will start to come out this week, as the weather is warming up now.

    I have just received some great news, my picture of the Mint Moth on one of my poppy seed heads, is going to be in this weeks Garden News magazines. I wrote off to them and sent the picture, I did the same previously with the Rosemary beetle picture and it got in three gardening magazines. image
