Flower identity

My computer doesn't like that link either.

Gorgeous flower though.

Can you identify this poppy?

Posted: 22/07/2016 at 09:00

The glaucous leaves and flower bud would indicate somniferum not orientale which has furry leaves.

Can you identify this poppy?

It's an opium poppy. Papaver somniferum.

Let the seed pod go Brown and the holes at the top open before you collect seed. Store in a paper bag. Scatter next March where you want them to grow. There may be variation, but they usually come true.

They are annuals.

Extra protein, Liri.

Anyone know what this is?

I posted before a picture appeared. I asked for a photo.

I thought Spirea but not sure of variety. Mine has flatter heads.

Plantain. Plantago major.   The roots are not that deep, lever them out.

Anyone know what this is?

You'll just have to have an hour off every month to deposit the cheque. On works time of course.

It is possible to set up the date of bank transfer  days , even weeks in advance , so there is no excuse.

tree overhanging my property?? what can i do

You might get them to pay for damage to boundary, but if the tree was there before you moved in, why did you move in, either renting or buying?

I have trouble with a neighbour who takes exception to the fact the 150 year old oak on the boundary drops acorns and bits of twigs and even leaves in his garden.  It has a tree preservation order which the solicitor should have pointed out before he bought the place. He can't touch it without permission from the council. His house is about 120 years younger than the tree, it's not as if it suddenly grew there, robbing existing light.
