June Flowers

It's poppy time. The usual red-orange poppies are nice but I like this frilly pink one better.

They are tough plants that seem to tolerate any kind of weather.

The white rugosa rose has a lovely scent. Most years the leaves are chewed by various insects but this year the leaves are untouched. Strange but nice.

Perennial cornflower. The blooms don't last very long but the bees like it and it is also very hardy.  I have a couple of plants that have self-sowed but it is certainly not popping up all over the place. I like the unusual colour and shape of the flower.
