Poppy love

Back in May,

The poppies were out in abundance —

Big poppy copy

 

Waving gently in the sun;

Flock of poppies

Some with flamboyant red

Upside down tutus;

Poppy cup

Others a mere

Poppy burst.

Poppy burst

I took a long time taking photos,

So Ruby had to check on me every now and then.

(She’s still on maternity leave with her pups at the moment though.)

  10. Perfect title with a pun. The image of the poppy reminded me of a famous British poem “In Flanders Field” by poet John McCrae. Here is the link if you care to review it: http://www.bartleby.com/103/83.html
