Poppies grow in my garden, half way up a Welsh hill. They seed in beds, by walls, in cracks on steps. How I love their ebullience, their joie de vivre. Notoriously bad at cutting back, not having the heart where there is the will to grow still; rewarded by the haphazardly unintended – the surprise additions, the sculpted seed heads. Other cousins join my joyful Meconopsis cambrica, seeded by intent or uncovered in the evolution of a garden. Beauty in variety, inspiration everywhere. Heads lift and droop by turns, petals drift and seeds rattle, every one a gift.

“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant.”
- Robert Louis Stevenson
