Backyard Beauty....






A good friend was away this past week so I was looking after her home, bringing in the mail, watering the windowboxes and planters, etc. I got to enjoy her beautiful pink poppies which bloomed all week, and now that she is back, they are almost finished. Too bad that she missed them at their best, but I sure am lucky that I got to appreciate their delicate beauty each day. I missed photographing my own poppies this year- the first few days they were in bloom  my camera was acting up, then several days of rain pretty much beat them to pieces... Ah well, there's always next year...









Aren't they beautiful?



Peace,
Linda

Gorgeous photos of the poppies.. I love those flowers!

I feel the same way about my roses, not that I wasn't here to enjoy them, but how the rain beat them to pieces.. oh and also the peonies, but this year I picked some and brought them in the house .. they lasted much longer than in the garden.
