The opening of the poppies...

I wait each year for the oriental poppies to appear....
and then for the blooms to unfurl...like a flamenco dancer swirling her silk skirt.

  3. I have a few wild ones, but my fancy, blousy, ones seem to have hibernated. I'm sure they'll pop up again sometime.... they always do.

  4. I adore them too Gerry. The trouble is that up here in the wilds their appearance usually coincides with a gale and a downpour. This year was no exception.
