For the first time, I planted Iceland Poppies. It has been so fun
to watch them grow! They are such funny furry little things that
bloom into beautiful tissue-paper-like flowers. We literally
watched the above flower bloom...all in about three hours.
It pleases me to take amateur photographs of my
garden, and it pleases my garden to make my
photographs look professional.
I took this photo at 9:00 A.M. one morning. When I
returned home at 1:00 the same day...
...this was waiting for me!
Why try to explain miracles to your kids when
you can just have them plant a garden...
They grow tall and the stems
bend and dip into all sorts of directions.
One of the most delightful things about a
garden is the anticipation it provides.

The crinkly nature of them reminds me of tissue paper!
The flower in the two photos above and the one below is
the same flower appearing in the photo at the top of
the blog. Same flower. Different camera.
Definitely different photographer!
Hello! I'm here to smile at you for a few days!
