Poppy love

I've been absolutely in love with my poppy this week as it finally came into flower. The neighbours must be thinking I'm a bit odd as I've been taking endless amounts of photos and gazing at it adoringly. Seriously, you got off lightly with only six photos! 


There was a flower of a different kind at Mum and Dad's: clematis 'Nelly Moser'. The sun seems to be bringing an explosion of colour everywhere.

Yesterday, after housework was finished, I got out my bike and went off in search of some photos for this month's scavenger hunt. It's the first time I've been on it since last summer and, boy, did my thighs feel the burn!

Hope you've had a great weekend and made the most of the glorious weather. I'll be back tomorrow with photos from our adventures today. x


  1. That poppy is stunning and I'd be exactly the same, taking loads of photos. Love the photo of the bike against the gorgeous colour of the flowers. x

  2. Lovely photos! I do that too - take endless photos of the same thing! The beauty of digital eh?

  3. I can totally understand your obsession! They look lovely!

  4. Beautiful flowers and colours Julie, I especially like the last one. Wishing you a great start to the week, the weather seems to have changed the sun and the blue sky are gone, today feels colder and greyer :-(

  5. I can't tell you how much I love poppies. We don't have them in Georgia, so I can only enjoy them when I visit England in June!
    Love your photo of the flowers with the bike in front of them, my husband could tell me the name of them but I can't remember what they are called!
