I don't know what it is exactly but there's something quite exciting and exotic about a blue poppy - maybe it's because there aren't that many blue flowers?
Anyway, I was very excited to see that my first Meconopsis (I think it is Mec. Langholm, but will need to check) has flowered. Look!
These viola were looking really pretty against the bronze grass too:
I have recently finished studying Horticulture at the Scottish Agricultural College, and am now working at a specialist plant nursery near Edinburgh. Tinkering around with these pots keeps me amused and gives me an outlet to experiment with some of the plants I meet at work - I'm hoping that i'll have reached the top of the allotment waiting list or moved somewhere with a garden before I run out of pot space... :o)
