Culture Clash

This summer there is a battle for supremacy being played out in my garden. It looks to me as though the native Field Poppies, in the red kit, will dominate, but the exotique North American interlopers - California Poppies in the yellow gear, are giving them a run for their money.

I'm rooting for the California poppy! It just always brings a smile to my face. [Took some photos of it at the BBQ last week] Antoinette

Hello Susan:

Wahey the Bleus!

Tim: The Siberian blues dropped out in the first round.

And for the tie-breaker - spell the "official" name for the California poppy!

Auty: easy peasy :_) I just tested myself - it's spelt as said.
