Field poppies are such ephemeral looking flowers, with crushed petals that slowly smooth out their creases. These poppies particularly drew me to them not only for their pure white colour but for the black cross at their base. Poppies are beloved of bumblebees and I had to add one, busily gathering pollen. With a garden set in a wooded valley, there is often a dark background to the flowers, accentuating their beauty.
