Volunteer Poppy


I didnt plant this, I think my bird friends did. Check out that vivid blue pollen! I will save the seeds from this and plant them next spring. When I went down to the weed patch to look for a treat for my budgies, I wasnt expecting to find a treat for myself as well. Some of lifes little surprises are quite pleasant, Cheers!

BEAUTIFUL surprise!!!! The blue pollen certainly adds a stunning addition to its appearance, although the poppy's petals are a lovely colour also!

Well your bird friends have great taste in flowers! Very pretty!

Lavender said...

Anon Even better in real life too! I was very surprised, felt quite lucky as well :)

BetteJo Tehehe Youre right, they do! I wonder where they found these seeds, clever birdies!

Thats why we have the birds and the bees to keep the world green!

The poppy is what we should see this week.

Lavender said...

Make Money Youre so right! :)

Captain Instead of odd-ball adverts? Tehehe Pity the rain has washed the petals off of this one already - (not complaining about the rain, we need it too much!) - but I hope the bees got to it before it started bucketing down again :)

That's a lovely poppy, like the ones we get in the fields. All sorts of curiosities spring up below our bird table from the fallen seed. The one year we had both a opium poppy and some hemp! We are still awaiting the police raid.

Barkfoot Hahahaha! Makes you wonder, doesnt it - oh poor birdies 'flying high' ROFL!

Hi OutDoorUtah! The orange poppies youre thinking of are the California Poppy, I have them growing here too they are great little plants. They were originally a wildflower in California, but now we have the seeds to grow them around the world - very lucky for us poppy loving gardeners! Thanks for stopping by!
