The boss and I haven't got a clue where these rather flashy poppies came from. Perhaps the seeds passed through a bird and were deposited in the garden in that manner, or maybe the seeds were simply carried on the wind. I've had a walk around the immediate area with the two terriers but I couldn't find any similar poppies, so it's a bit of a mystery.
Farmer's do 'diversify' but I don't know if opiates are part of the new agricultural plan for the United Kingdom.
It would be a lucrative cash crop though.
The boss says forget it.
