Happy Friday everybody. I've no big news to share with you today so I thought I'd instead share with you a photo of this beautiful poppy that burst into flower in the garden a few days ago. There's something about poppies that makes me smile. They're just such big, brash, beauties - yet intrinsically frail and temporary in their scope. These are cultivated poppies rather than the wild ones we find around the village, so they seem to be stronger and longer lasting than their wild cousins. We have a lot of buds just waiting to burst but this one won the race to be first.

oh I agree. when I was a little girl we would play with the and turn them upside down like girls with long flaring dresses. and make them dance around . kids don't do these kind of things any more. having video games and already madr toys that are expensive.
