Poppy



Translucent beauty on such fragile stem,the most powerful reds.
Their heart,a jewel. Poppies keep amazing me;
Thick promising bud,opening slowly,showing crumpled petals.
Followed by a wow performance,making the best of their short life.
Capsule,little spaceship slowly lifting tiny cover to release the seeds.
Tiny,tiny seeds,holding so much.

Peonies and shaded lamps

Outside velvet peonies; rich,deep colours,ancient plant ,painted through all ages and used against nightmares
in the middle ages.But I want the rain to stop 'cause it makes those big ,lascivious flowerheads too heavy and
I want them to reach to the sun. Up till now the month of may is to cold. Clouds and days that are to dark make me put on the shaded lamps when I'm in the house. The garden gets greener and greener and there are all kinds of perfumes in the air, I love this time of the year but I could do with some more sunlight ......
