Danish Flag

Danish Flag 1

Bought the seeds for this poppy simply because it looked a bit unusual. Turned out that it is a beautiful one and surprisingly easy to grow.

The combination of white and read is quite striking. Also the shape of the flower is not regular.

Have been waiting and waiting for it to start blooming and now hoping that the heavy showers don’t ruin it.

Well that was false hope. Two hours after the photo was taken a hailstorm struck and all the blooming Danish flags were gone. Luckily there are still some where the buds are not open so not all hope is lost.
