Open to the beauty of the day.
Surround yourself with friends.
In searching for a quote or poem in reference to poppies,
they almost all refer to Flander Field and war time.
May these soft pink and purple poppies represent for us today
a time of peace and JOY.
The ruffled edges remind me of the skirts of a ballerina.
The centers are like tiny tuffets just for us to sit awhile
amongst the sweet scent of the poppy.
There will be about 10 seed pods on these poppies,
some will be re-sewn into the garden.
The first 5 to comment they would like a pod,
I will send when they are dried and ready to send.
Enjoy the day and savor the sunshine of a summer weekend.
Slow and easy, time to meditate.
Happy weekend, dear friends!
