The opium poppy experiment continues......if you've been following along than you know I planted several varieties of pharmaceutical grade opium poppies in the garden this year (from seed of course!). Their blooms are as large as my head, and the seed pods are as big as golf balls! I've decided to extract their latex exudate for use in a handcrafted, naturally perfumed salve I'm calling "Laudanum". I want to stress that I'm not extracting these beauties to get "high". I have a deep connection with the plants I grow, and that includes research and knowledge (Opium for the Masses is a great starting point for opium poppy information). Know what you grow! With that being said, the latex exudate does contain opium, which has narcotic effects, and can prove fatal if taken in large enough doses. Most ornamental varieties will not contain enough opium to write home about, but the right varieties will. The varieties I chose have proved themselves worthy. My husband crafted me a four point blade which I used to make an incision on the ripe seed pods. They are currently dripping their milky white sap, which will be ready to harvest once it turns a dark brown to black color. It is around 100 degrees today, the perfect temperature to create the incisions on the ripe seed pods. The poppies aren't finished blooming, so I should have a steady supply of seed pods to harvest from the next couple of weeks. I will keep you all posted on my Laudanum adventure, including the making of the salve (if the feds don't come for me first!). #opiumpoppies #opiumpoppy #poppy #poppies #opium #laudanum #exudate #latex #sap #seedpod #seedpods #harvest #milky #experiment #gardengirl #greenthumb #greenthumbed #spirited #ripe #handharvested #handpicked #garden #organicgarden #adventure #salve #madscientist #handmade #handcrafted #SeedToPerfume #opiumforthemasses

Is there anything as alien as the extreme slow motion of poppy flowers bursting out of their pods? Our new fuchsia and alyssum bed has fair been taken over by the poppies but we've decided to let them do their thing, so we call collect seeds later and sow them elsewhere in the garden. See more in my Stories. . It's been monsoon-like here in Wales today, though I didn't mind, safely protected inside the office, which is always so quiet on a Friday. After work we popped to shops to buy towels, crockery and curtains for the coach house annexe – we'll be putting it up on Airbnb within a week or so. Tomorrow we'll do more shopping for the other things on the list. We rewarded ourselves with dinner at @BistrotPierre , a chain we'd not encountered before. Their £10 July menu was truly excellent value and delicious. Again, see my Stories! . What's on the cards for you this weekend? . #poppy #poppies #gardening #gardenlover #plantlife #homelife #monmouthshire #rurallife #newlife #fbc19uk #welivetoexplore #amazingplace #igflower #instaflower

On this rainy(AGAIN) day I spent time in my studio working on a poppy painting. Not sure if it’s really abstract and I spent wayyyyy too much time on so I am leaving it for today and will reassess tomorrow. Swipe to see some closeups . . #poppies #workinprogress

It’s hard to believe that I have already been home for two weeks after my rather extended hospital stay. I’m not able to do all of the things I usually do but I have been enjoying a quiet time with my family and spending as much time as possible outside. Whilst in hospital I read a book about bees and was amazed to find out just how clever they are and the incredible ways they have evolved. In the churchyard behind our cottage there is a flower meadow currently full of poppies and I had them on my mind when I sat down to paint this afternoon. Thank you again for your very kind messages over the last six weeks. I am looking forward to catching up with you all over the next few weeks.
