I miss having poppies in our garden. They are such glorious blooms, so fragile looking, from their fine green tendrils to their delicate crepe silk-like petals to the beautiful rich centres. We did have some here and they seemed to disappear. Maybe they were pulled up by mistake, but in any case they are gone. This flower I had to photograph on someone else’s property. Fortunately for me they were hanging partly over the ditch next to the road (just down from all the phlox, for anyone who has been following along on my walk) and so I hardly had to trespass at all. This flower seems a little sad, probably as the poppy season was ending. When I looked for them a couple of days ago, they were all finished. Though that is a bit sad, there are so many new lovely flowers following along that I barely have time to regret the finish of one before another is demanding my attention. This is a perfect project for a hyperactive person, one with a lot of energy but still with some focus!

  1. Dreamy and divine is this poppy photo. Not the least bit sad to my eye. Rather I see a mature bloom who is still eager to see what the day brings; a member of the red hat society who, at certain age, wears red and purple together without a worry. She has panache and knows it. To this and to all who are a bit past their prime, I say “you go, girl!” Thank you, Ellie, for a nod to those gals.

    1. It’s true that colour combination is bold and.. just works! And I admit this is one of my favourite photos. Maybe pensive would have expressed it better. Thanks again, Janet.
