October Surprise

Papaver orientale

I’m so pleased a few of my poppies have managed to flower again… if I cut them back immediately after they have flowered in May a second flower sometimes follows in autumn. Unfortunately this flower got caught by our first frost the day after I took this photo at the end of last week.

But it was beautiful for a day or two!
