Flowers in the garden are???



 The red poppies are in flower - Jean I think these are your ones you sent me.

 Love the bumble bee getting full of pollen


I don't seem to have my poppies all flowering at the same time...
The pink ones are yet to flower from Jack n Rosa's nana.

My purple poppies growing in Judy's garden.



I always thought this was a frangipani - but I am doubting myself - any help?


Another herb I've planted and totally forgotten what it is... Herb growers HELP


It's leaves and stem...

  1. Gayle, that does look like a poppy from the seed we had, but this year all my red ones are so ruffled, love the purple ones. Sorry, I'm no help with the others unknown. A very red sky behind the tall trees earlier, maybe the " shepherds' warning"? Greetings to all, Jean. p.s. will save you some red ruffled seeds.

  3. LOVE the poppies! I have one of those Frangipani trees, ours is quite big & I was told it is an Australian Frangipani, the most heavenly sent in the evenings.

  6. I just discovered this yellow frangipani in a friend's garden. Love the bumble bee enjoying the poppy.

    1. I do tend to waste time watching birds and bees - but then is it really wasting time? SMILE

  7. I think it's Yellow Rattle or Cockscomb, Rhinanthus minor. Mx
