Spring came yesterday, technically, though it was cold and blustery and they are still predicting SNOW for this weekend. So…I wandered out to the garden to see if anything was anticipating spring as impatiently as I was. I found several brave little plant souls poking through the ground. This one has to be my favorite, though. It’s a huge oriental poppy, wine red, and even though the blooms only last a few days it has to be my absolute favorite. If my flowers are making their way boldly toward spring, even with snow on the way, I can cheer up and go dig through the closet for my flip flops!
Here is a picture from dancing oaks.com of a poppy similar to mine in full bloom, which will happen probably in late May or early June. Thanks for another great phoneography challenge!
