|Frilly poppy. Nikon D7000|
I am sure the poppies in the vegetable plot are getting frillier each year. This flower was struggling to open due to its own divided petals.
We do not have many poppies this year; the cold spring did not seem favourable for their germination, but there may be hope later in the summer as the ground is warming nicely now.
The poppies do not seem to be any later this year, if anything, they are opening a little earlier.
