Look At Me

This poppy self seeded in the planter by the back door and a few times I've considered pulling it out but decided against it. Today it had opened to be greeted by torrential rain is really shouting Look at Me against the blue lobelia am glad I gave it the time to open. Absolutely pouring at the moment not a good summer solstice day dark evening no stunning sunset.

I am just admiring the containers myself, have to say they suit the steps, and they flower arrangement looks well
