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.

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.)

  4. oh i love poppies so much! they always remind me of growing up in portugal as a young girl. i didn’t get to see any when i went north this year. thank you for posting these.


  5. You remind me that I’d like to plant some poppies here. Your photos are just wonderful. Upside down tutus made me smile.


  6. Your poppies are magnificent. I love poppies and saw many of them in the fields of France when we were there, more than any I have ever seen in my life. Ruby is so cute with her head popping up like that. Such a pretty dog 🙂


  7. Gorgeous poppy photos, Fiona. It’s easy to lose track of time photographing beautiful blooms like these, isn’t it! They make me think of flamenco dancers!

    Each spring is a glory, and your photos show that.Oscar with his poppies!?

  10. Love those flamboyant ladies with their upside down tutus! Beautiful. Ruby would rather run than stop to smell the flowers though (well, then. Maybe now she’d be happy for the slower pace!). Makes me happy to see you posting a ‘back in time’ … because I’m going to be doing a lot of that for a while . (If Lady Fi can do it, so can I, I will tell myself).
