In The Deep Mid-Winter

We all need Poppies in the sun right about now. And I have just the thing. Light & color.








I read this description in the local paper awhile ago. 
"Poppy seeds are as fine as dust, and the petals as delicate as fairy shawls."

The poppies are so pretty. I used to grow similar ones years ago,but for some reason they died out.

That is a great quote about the poppy. Your photos are gorgeous! I love the poppy, I don't get to see them that often but they are such a bright, cheerful and happy flower. At least that's how it makes me feel when I see them.

Fairy shawls. I like that. :)

Oh, how pretty! My bed cover is from The Country Door. I bought three different ones some years ago and they are all reversible - so six great covers for the price of three.

Love the bright colours! Too bad, we can't grow them here. Have a beautiful new week!
