Today was windy and fabulous.
I had finished pickling the current pickled onions that had been sitting in salt over night, I had hammered a picture hook in the wall, I had been hideous food shopping and, this is hard to confess….I had watched last night’s Dallas episode.
Now was the time for a walk, so off I went. Armed with my camera, as always, I tramped through fields and eventually found something I wanted to photograph!
A poppy seed head.
But before I show you the pic I want to go back through yon poppy’s life cycle with you.
And after a little while and the summer sun, Pete Le Poppy (remember to hover) explodes into this….
Summer progressed and Pete Le Poppy’s petals fell off….
Just another similar shot that I rather like now…
So now it’s Autumn, there isn’t so much green…in fact I think one could say that the seed heads look quite dry! Here’s a selection of those that I found….
See what I mean?
Here’s the pattern on the end…
I have collected as many seed as I can and will fling them about in my garden tomorrow!
Here’s one last large shot of Pete Le Poppy…
Now, the poem…
Sometimes when I’m lonely
Sometimes when I’m sad
I sit down in front of the mirror
And pull faces that look really bad!!
See Ya xx
