Just poppies

Sometimes it's in the most unthinkable corners of the garden you can find a wonderful photo opportunity.

To me, poppies, wherever they turn up in the garden, are reason enough to grab my camera.

Wind or rain can't keep me from trying to capture these fragile beauties.

Look at this special one with a touch of white on the edges.

It's really never happened before that there were so many poppies turning up
in our garden and not in the spot we'd expect them to either.

Somehow some poppy seeds must have ended up in and around the compost heap
because that's the spot where poppies are thriving in the garden this year.

Due to all the rain and wind we had over the last few weeks,
the poppies are hanging over the edge of the bin as if they were a waterfall
and the ones next to the compost heap have all fallen onto the grass 
and then getting themselves up again to bloom afterall.

Fragile but so resilient.

I love poppies, bright splashes of color on grey days.

Have a wonderful day,
