Last week, on my first day back on Button Moon, we prepared the annual wildflower beds for the coming year. It seemed a fitting way to mark the occasion of my return to the fold. The border was weeded, the bones of last year’s blooms were pulling up and any remaining seed broadcast. Looking forward to the future. It is the only way to go.
This is the carcass of a particularly frou frou, bruise purple poppy that infiltrated the native mix. It might not be true to the standard meadow form, but it was welcomed with open arms. The contents of the pepper pot seed head will be scattered with the rest. We do love a bit of frou frou.
