Beautiful banner Lilli!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thank You! all.


This is my first ever banner, so I appreciate the feed-back. I tip my hat to you.

Mine grow to 90 - 100 cm in height (around 3 ft.)

I can't tell you the name of the pinkish purple cultivar in front, because they got mixed up when we moved a couple of years ago, but the dark red one in the background is Papaver ori. 'Royal Chocolate Distinction'.
Of course I talk to myself; sometimes I need expert advice!

Very pretty bloomers and banner! Lovey dubby

Tell me what I am seeing on the upper left hand bloom? It appears fuzzy like a caterpillar.

Thank You! both! I tip my hat to you.


Kristi, I think what you are referring to is a dried up sepal - the buds on Oriental poppies are very fuzzy:

Congratulations on your first banner, Lilli! I missed it when it was being displayed, but it looks like it was a good one! Bright and in-focus. The original image was perfectly aligned to allow you a simple cropping above and below. You can also tilt images that aren't perfectly aligned to capture the best part for a banner. It is fun and a challenge to get a good banner. Looking forward to more banners from you! Smiling
