Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Poppy Pop

A poppy bursting out of its shell this morning.  I posted images from this clump of poppies  before. What puzzles me is how it used to be a clump of peach coloured poppies. The creased petals always make me think of Princess Diana’s wedding dress, I have a long memory for matters of such inconsequence.


As you can see we’d had rain overnight.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. Just a case perhaps of reverting to type. I am sometimes guilty of this myself.

  2. That is far and away the most interesting photo of a poppy that I’ve ever seen. That it’s also beautiful is a bonus.

  3. I agree with Gerry – a remarkable shot of the poppy – papery and glorious.

  4. Wonderful picture. My first poppies have flowered this week, I took a picture of the oriental one today in the drizzle. xx

  5. wonderful photos. I love the poppy a lot. It’s so hard to photograph red things successfully but you succeeded
