Beautiful poppies! Mine are all that common orange. I enjoy them but if I had something like this..... Do you know the name?
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Dear Mary, they are Papaver orientalis. I do not know if they are cultivars as they were growing wild in some gravel.
They get to about 3 feet tall though!

At last got the old girl working again! With some new washers and a filter for the electric pump I finally got the old pump doing it what it should do.
Even got the path up to it for Sarah's cats to have a drink, sorted out.
Regards.

Very pretty. Rain here; SU won't have to worry about going to the guy's farm and running the silobagger for his hay silage. LOL

Me? I'm gonna go take a little nap before we have to head out for the milking venue. We leave here about 5.

Everyone has seen nice things so far, but you will have to wait for my Articles to see a lot of it!
However I love this and want one!
Took them a month to build and they have not got long to take it down, now that Chelsea is over.
Lovely mill pond as well.
Regards.

Dear Cheryl, now you are living in Kentucky this is your native wild orchid. Unfortunately there is not many left in the wild, which is a shame! However there were lots at the Chelsea Flower Show.

Cypripedium kentuckiensis. Or the Kentucky Ladys Slipper Orchid.

Beautiful, Neil, unfortunately, I have killed my $25 C. kentuckiensis root! Possibly with kindness - ackkkkk!

Sorry I've been so absent. My Kentucky family was here for a quick visit over the weekend and we have used every minute to the fullest.

This is what I call a fantastic Bonsai Acer palmatum 'Osakazuki'.
Though I could never afford to pay for one this old!

Impressive little tree! Also I love quilts but cannot imagine ever making one I lack the manual dexterity and patience - I couldn't sit still that long!

Neil, how can you tell that it is very old? Maybe by the size of the trunk just above the soil level? It certainly has a beautiful shape. Do the leaves stay small because of the growing conditions, or is that the normal size leaf for that variety?
