A little googling gave this from Wikipedia: Meconopsis betonicifolia, also known as Meconopsis baileyi and the Himalayan blue poppy, was first discovered in 1912, by Lt. Col. Frederick Marshman Bailey. M. betonicifolia is hardy in most of the United Kingdom and it has striking large blue flowers but it probably owes much of its success to the fact that, unlike most Meconopsis, it is perennial.
The cherries have shown their flowers for a week now. The end is near, and the ground will be covered with the petals – pink until rain washes them away or the sun dries them out. I caught some of them remaining on the tree.
This is a view from 2009. 25th of April. I wonder what it will look like this year after they have felled a lot of the trees and moved around in the wood with their big machines.
