Poppies are all a-bloom at my house.

Being of a slightly excessive nature, I can never seem to do things in small doses. From a few packets of seeds, bought enthusiastically last Autumn, grew a very high yield. "Just choose a few and throw the rest out", "be not a slave to your seedling trays" my work mates tried to tell me. Like I would ever do that..........
 So I worked for hours in the garden, lovingly planting hundreds of teeny, weeny seedlings.
But the rewards are starting to show. Every day I am greeted with more and more of these little beauties.
 Next to flower will be the foxgloves, growing quickly in this warm weather. There were also hollyhocks, but the snails seem to have eaten them all, only three have survived.
Winter vegies are almost at an end, so they're being pulled out to make room for a whole lot of beetroots, carrots, spring onions, leeks, radish, eggplant, tomatoes, corn....................
