Handsome flowers and handsome dog

Striking a pose

Poppies are one of the only ‘weeds’ which I positively encourage in the garden.

I was preparing to photograph a clump with the light on them when I realised that Taylor had obligingly provided a white background.

But after the rain it was red on red – shining rubies on delicate silk.

      Aren’t they though? There are roadside verges and fields full of them – it’s an Italian speciality!

    What lovely photos. You sometimes see them in the fields over here too but I have never managed to grow any in our garden

      Thank you for your appreciation. Poppies just seem to pop up – all I do is stop people mowing them down whenever I can.
