At last the rain has stopped and the big yellow ball is back in a beautiful blue sky. We have has flood warnings all over Kent and the river at the end of our lane has burst its banks. Global warming? Poppies aren't they a delight. Different colours, assorted sizes and spread all over as long as they are happy. I loved this white variety that just appeared. They look so fragile and pure. I collected seeds, so hopefully. Poppies appear everywhere here and that pleases me. I couldn't live without them. I grow a lot of wildflowers here. Weeds to some people but the bees adore them. Some of my other favourites are lesser celandine, herb robert, selfheal, ladies smock and my great grandmothers favourite ragged robin. I get excited just thinking about them, roll on spring. Quote: Flowers feed the soul.
