    Out today for a walk and found, in a recently-planted field of maize where the farmer had, earlier, dumped some hardcore, that from this hardcore some lovely poppies had emerged:

    Someone has planted a couple of large clumps of them in a small local stream. Problem was finding a couple of decent. isolated blooms.

    Absolutely! I often move heartsease off the allotment (where they are a "weed") into my garden (where they are definitely welcomed as flowers) - especially one with tiny white flowers. They are almost invisible, but so worth it when you find one.
