Poppies, June’s Plant of the Month

In early June I posted about the glorious poppies that were coming up all over the city.

But the next week I went to the university and found another batch of poppies glowing in the sunlight.

I was going to save them for next June’s Plant of the Month, but then Nancy came up with the challenge: ‘Flower’ and Frank’s challenge was ‘Radiant’, and these poppies certainly qualify for both!
