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
Oh dearie dearie me!
Things are not looking good for Lupinus Lupina (that’s my name for the Lupin, not the latin name!). It seems that she (for that is what sex I believe she is) is struggling to come to terms with the harsh treatment received at the weekend…mind you she has survived til today so….you never know. Will keep you updated.
On the other hand, this is a fine healthy poppy getting ready for Opening Day:
Don’t have much to say today….
See ya xx
