We’ve had this hairy looking poppy plant growing at our place ever since we moved here in 1977. It originally grew on the east of the house, but we moved into the garden so it would get more sun. Amazingly, after at least 35 years, it is still alive and thriving.
I’ve taken numerous photos of its big red orange blossoms, but yesterday when I was out weeding in the garden I noticed how interesting and unusual it’s leaves and buds are. It is covered with soft furry hairs. I took this photo to show you what I saw.
