What's in the meadow?

Woke up to see this lovely dark red poppy in the meadow this morning, had to go strait out in my pajamas to have a look.

Also in the meadow is a small patch of peppermint. I know it spreads, so I thought it would work well here. Funny, this meadow is home to a few vegetables as well, I have an old Christmas tree with beans growing up it, when the veg garden was flooding earlier this year, I put some of the seedlings here.

Acompanying me were a few cats. Here's Pippin amonst the bird's-foot trefoil.

Here's my neighbor's cat, Shed. She's hiding under a huge unknown plant, with fuzzy leaves. It's going to bloom soon, so maybe I can identify it. Very stately plant!

Wonderful pictures! If I had seen that poppy out my window, I would have done the same.

As for the unknown plant, I think I have the same one (or at least, I have something that looks similar). It is very hard to dig up, but you're right - it sure makes a statement! If I can figure out what it is, I'll drop you a line.

You have a lovely blog! Thanks for linking to Arboreality. :)
