The last few days have been so gorgeous, here at the edge of the Salish Sea, and my garden is a magical place, every single spring and summer. I didn't know my husband had sprinkled poppy seeds all about, and was delighted when they began to flower in such a beautiful blue-purple. There is one bright red poppy, but we save that for another day.
Every Mother's Day, my husband makes sure to buy new flowers for the decorative pots on our back deck. This year we really seem to be raising the purple, at least for this post! It's only one of the colours in our garden's bouquet, like Stephanie, in our Blogonia garden. Ah, such a beauty. Here's to you, and here's to purple!
I loved the way morning light played upon petals.
As you enjoy this post of purple, please remember that May is Lyme-Awareness Month. There's a bumper crop of nymph ticks this spring, no bigger than poppy seeds, all over North America. Love the purple...learn about the Lyme.
