#selfseeded in the raised vegetable bed! There are lots of buds so I must remember to save some seedpods. #poppy #jacarandaraisedbed #mygardentoday

A real beauty and a great feat of nature! This is a #selfseeded #poppy and it’s almost 6ft tall. It was a real challenge taking the photo but it was well worth the effort 💕 #mygardentoday 27/06/2019

Not the first #poppy to open in the garden but certainly the biggest and best so far! It’s also #selfseeded in the gravel by the vegetable area path which just goes to show that #natureknowsbest ❤️ #mygardentoday 24/06/2019

I love the fact that you are only supposed to grow opium poppies if you don’t know what they are! It only becomes illegal once you know what it is 😂
