A poppy! It stands about a metre tall, and has petals of a very pale purple colour with dark purple centres. I noticed the calixes of the unopened flowers were covered in a thick wirey hair, unlike the soft down I remember on my grandfather's poppies. One of the flowers had lost its petals leaving behind a fat, teardrop-shaped seed case with a- um- flat cap.
sort of like an opium poppy's
No. Exactly like an opium poppy.
oh dear. I wonder how that got there.
I'll have to ask the police about previous tenents.
