That looks like pure sunshine in the center, and it is.
All Poppies are beautiful this year. Corn poppies are just starting, no pics yet.
Roses are starting -- did I say that yesterday?
Reine des Violettes is one of those you can smell before you see it, a peppery rose scent that
carries on the breeze. It has few thorns and long canes.
I have to get the purple alternathera planted beside it and around the end.
I hoped the purple would sprout out from the roots but I think it is dead.It was really a strong grower. I'm glad I kept cuttings.
I have some chartreuse alternanthera cuttings to plant out and some bits of red.
They do better in sun. The best show comes in the fall.
