i got this poppy 'harvest moon' in april or may of this year, it flowered in its pot and that was it i thought it had died off as the leaves went on it but when i planted it in to the new area it took off again and now it is attempting to flower and i think the other two will follow this one has a fine big bud on it, the colour will be orange which fits into the colour scheme in this bed. i really hope it gets to flower again before the winter 

i got 2 solar spot lights in woodies for 5 euro, these change colour and look really cool in the grass beds, i must pick up a few more this weekend coming

Lovely orange poppy. Those solar lights are very reasonable. They give a lovely soft effect to the night garden.

they sure do jacinta, it is end of season so they are trying to sell them off rather than be stuck with them

I have the occasional poppy giving a late flower too - they really brighten things up! That spotlight is very effective! I have a whole box of solar lights I forgot to put out this year - maybe I'll put them out now ......

That orange is lovely, must watch out for that one. Good bargain on the spotlights too

thanks Michelle, I have one, bright orange, I think it may be Allegro but not sure, I like that Harvest Moon is a softer orange
