Picture of Welsh poppies in the churchyard of St John in Leeds city centre.
This last few days here in Leeds we have had the first heavy rain in quite a while and I am quite pleased about this. I think the grass and plants generally will be in better condition and I know a couple of gardeners who will much happier about their plants.
These yellow poppies, the Welsh poppy (Meconopsis cambrica) are looking a little battered by the recent rain, some of which can be seen on the flowers in a small flower bed adjacent to the wall of the church. The Welsh poppy is the only native plant of the poppy family in Europe, this perennial plant is I think a very pretty flower and I have always been pleased to have it grow in any garden where I have lived.
