Grade zero (and more poppies)

I re-applied the summer cut this evening and went one closer than normal to see how a zero would look. Pretty good I thought, but I've been told I'm not allowed to do it again - ho hum. I got the better half to record it for posterity so you can let me know what you think...

Looking back at the previous post reminded me that the poppies are still going over here. They've found a second wind and are just as good as they were a few weeks ago. This is clearly the last hurrah though, as there aren't many unflowered heads left in the field. With the grass grown up long around them they are looking great right now though.

Poppies


The poppies seem to have been a bit of a hit. Not once but twice since I posted them I've been contacted on Flickr asking exactly where the field is and whether the poppies are still in bloom (flora_london having gone so far as to register with Flickr just to contact me!). It's nice to be able to act as a tour guide for the North Downs once in a while :-)
