A Poppy Moment
A little poppy moment on today's dog walk reminded me that everything does not need to be planned out completely in a garden. Here an icelandic poppy (yellow) seems to have sprouted in place.
Growing in front of a rock edge and seemingly on a paved path, this poppy doesn't take up much room and is a reminder that we don't need to deadhead everything - a few poppy pods left standing led to this happy surprise.
