Happy Memorial Day

Been too cold, so my red poppies are late to bloom this year. Last year’s will have to do to honor Memorial Day.

It’s a soaker (again) here today.


Red Poppy: My Favorite

My red poppies always bloom faithfully at the end of May, usually in time for Memorial Day, but I think this year, because it came so early in the month, they hadn’t bloomed yet.

But, like beautiful little memorials, they have arrived. I don’ t have anything planted close enough to them to give perspective, but they are huge.
