In bloom today


These are the first flowers on the Patty Plum Poppies and it self sets every where for free which is a bonus.
It is a beautiful colour.
I hope you like it too ☺️

Please can anybody identify the clematis ?

Hi Hows you

Sorry to say that its not "Patty's Plum" the pollen and stamens is much darker in the center also its perennial plant and does not come true from seed I think you have one of the "opium " varieties , but apart from that its still a beauty.

Hope you dont mind me being honest with you ....

I am thinking the same as Gg Marjorie it does look more like the opium poppy variety. I am waiting for my ornamental poppies to start flowering, one of them is supposed to be Patty's Plum will post a picture when/if it flowers but if it is anything like the ones that were supposed to be Beauty of Livermore and turned out to be something completely different I shall not be able to post a picture for you. lol. ah well its a beautiful poppy I have this one too.

Yes, these are annuals whereas Patty's Plum are perennial Papaver Orientalis.
Is the Clematis a double white flower Marjorie??
Just wonder if it might be Duchess of Esinburgh although there are many varieties of white Clematis of course.
Ps.......there is a photo of my Papaver Orientalis Patty's Plum in my blog 'Before, During and After...the Front Garden Revamped' (19th photo down)

Can't help with the name of either I'm afraid, but the poppy is lovely.
