Wow! Look how she's opened up to smile today 😊😊pretty amazing to say there's a slight bend on her stalk. She's, amazing! For anyone who doesn't know; this one had to be rescued and was tight shut. She's propped up with a kebab stick and tags 😊😊💕💕#victorialouise poppy

Catalog for progress, is that what we do or is catalog just for new seeds/plants? I hope when she arrives that she isn't at the mercy of our poor June weather. Come June we really need some sun!!😊😊💕💕

I am thrilled and amazed that this little poppy bloomed. My first one and this one got battered by our wet windy June! I was quite upset. I brought them both in and this one was was shut tight. Will she or won't she flower I thought. Maybe a chance she will; and here she is! The pod was still sat on top so, I took it off and she unfurlled 😀💕💕

@christineb She had to be supported by a kebab stick! She was slightly wobbly. I put bag ties round to give her the best chance. I'm a plant nurse!!😃

If we leave everything in the garden, we glance at it for seconds as it sits amongst thousands.🤷🏻‍♂️worth bringing in. Especially the nice ones..A single flower in the house looks spectacular all evening..💚💚

@lostgardener She is a lot smaller than she appears on here. She's a sweet little thing. I was lucky she flowered 😊😊

@bandicoot It was until this wretched wind battered it and caused it to bow its head. I'm so sick of this wind!😨😣
