When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

7 Jun 18 • I don’t know the variety of this #poppy but it also thrives in partial shade. The encyclopaedia says they are only hardy to -5C but these (& the red ones) have been in the garden for over 20 years. I don’t give them any winter protection and they’ve survived winters much colder than that 💕🌸💕🌸💕

Oh lovely Jacqueline. Such a pretty colour. I think they are pretty tough and don’t mind a bit of cold.

They look so delicate don’t they, but they’re just pretending 😉😊 @jadojado29

I completely agree Nicola. I leave the flowers to go to seed and it doesn’t seem to weaken them at all either. Plus I get more popping up in unexpected places 👍😊 @jendren
