One of the greatest pleasures at this time of year is to see so much of the countryside here covered in poppies. Sometimes there are so many it looks, from a distance as if a red sheet has been spread across the ground. But close up I like to see them mixed with the other wild flowers I associate with fields left fallow and meadows of the past.
On the overcast day at the beginning of the week the poppies positively glowed in the late afternoon light.
Tomorrow is Garden Blogger’s Foliage Day – the time when when can share the pleasure of the foliage in our gardens and the flowers can take a back seat for once. I hope you’ll join me.
