White poppies Guardian

Woke up early at the beach hut on Saturday to find myself a stranger in a strange land To explain: a new bank of umbellifers (I think) has swamped the southern border, with the silver birch and blue cedar almost disappearing under a 5ft wall of white pollen. The rugosa, too, was struggling in lush growth. The woodpile nearly obliterated by a nettle forest. But the biggest shock was along the southern wall, where a few poppy tufts are now a giant hydra-headed hedge! Scarlet-haired …

White Poppies in Glasgow

It has been dark, cold and rainy in Glasgow at the start of this new year, although we have seen the sun a few times. When it does appear, I feel quite euphoric! Recently, on a gloomy day, I had the good fortune to have a ramble through the lovely Botanics. I set myself the challenge of finding “winter interest” in the garden to show you. (Just to let you know, I didn’t go inside the glass houses.) I love looking for buds, and the rhododendrons are full of them: I can’t wait to …

When do white poppies Bloom

When do white poppies Bloom

As a girl growing up in England I remember Armistice Day being called Poppy Day. In Australia we call it Rememberance Day but the poppy is still the iconic symbol of rememberance. Last night I spoke to my 99 year old Mum on the phone and she told me that her brother had died in the trenches on Armistice Day - I believe he was 18 years old and had just gone to war. My mother s memory of the time is that her mother s hair turned white virtually overnight when she received the news …
