In the Garden

At the start of spring, I got excited every time anything bloomed.

Now, securely ensconced in the green of summer, I sometimes take the beauty, green and warmth around me for granted.

This post is dedicated to stopping to smell the roses, er, enjoy the poppies!

Garlands of poppies and cornflowers sound really beautiful India!

The poppy in our garden is "supposed to be" pink....but this photo is pretty true to color. Not a rosy pink, if it's even pink at all.
