Worth a second look

Gardens should be approached on our knees. So we don't miss things like this:

Flower unfolding from its bud

Comes in blue and lilac, with pin-stripes

I've forgotten what plant this was; it got transplanted by mistake with a batch of primulas. Once the flowers are completely open, I may remember.

UPDATE: It's a Himalayan Blue Poppy, Meconopsis baileyi.

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
