Home Grown Poppy

Last year I ‘harvested’ some of the many poppy heads that were left after these amazing plants had finished flowering.
I collected the seeds and we planted them in pots in the garden – I didn’t imagine that much would happen. I was wrong!
This is just one of the many poppies that graced our garden this year.

Squawking Youngsters

A second ‘legion’ of young starlings are now occupying the feeders in the garden – vociferous, squawking youngsters that harass their parents for food … food … and more food!
