Popping Poppies

How can anyone not love these wonderful flowers? They make my heart sing…’Summer is coming!’… My garden has so many Oriental Poppies and they are so big, bold and blousy. They say, ‘Look at ME!’, and you just have to. The bees love them and invariably they get coated in the purple pollen, as the scramble to find their grip, inside the huge flower heads. Everyday more fat buds pop open and my camera is at the ready to take photos of the crepe papery petals and hairy, bulbous buds. Gorgeous!

This time of year, is my favourite, when everything is bright and new. So many flowers out and the trees in full leaf.
