Late Bloomers


I've never seen this before. A couple of more poppies are trying to bloom. This one is deformed. Have to wait to see what the other bloom looks like. We put some compost tea made from my wife's white bread compost on the cut-back poppies last week. Could that have done it? This is very late in the year for poppies to try to bloom in my experience. Art Appraiser's catnip is in the background.

I love it! The white bread compost comes back as a deformed poppy and the saga continues. But that poppy is pretty sad looking. Why don't you run out and get some Geritol and pour it on the pathetic little poppy. It just might perk right up.

There are so many deformed things in my garden. Mutant poppies, mutant butterflies. Twisted thoughts and desires. Afraid, my dear? he asked in his best Boris Karloff voice.
