The garden has been rather neglected in recent weeks due to business commitments and theatre productions, but luckily many plants look after themselves.
This summer our two red poppy plants promise a magnificent display. The original plant has over 10 heads starting to flower, while the second plant, which grew from a piece of root left when we moved the original plant, has about 20 heads.
The poppies always look so cheerful and the colours inside are as vibrant as those on the inside. They really make me feel that summer is here.
