I was astonished to visit my parent’s garden and discover that they where the proud propergater’s of a magnificent crop of genuine, ‘Opium Poppies’…

Apparently they are perfectly legal to grow in Australia…as long as you do not use them inappropriately. Of course, Mum and Dad didn’t even know what these babies where, ( and probably never will), All the same…they are so magical and colorful that I will leave them unaware, as too be able too photograph these beauty’s for years to come.
