Scarlet poppy

I know I keep saying it but I really love my box garden full of flowers. It just delights me more than I can say.

And far and wide, in a scarlet tide, The poppy's bonfire spread.

I'm always taking close-up photos so here's a shot of my whole box garden. It's probably 4 feet wide by 20 feet long. I used to plant my onions there until the deer decided they LOVED playing "king of the mountain" and kept eating all their tops off. Now it's a nice spot for poppies, daisies, cornflowers and perennial flax.

See more of my poppies [here].

Is that actually in your garden? It looks like a huge space! (with lots of flowers!)
