Poppy days are here again. Thank you.

Today is the fourth anniversary of this blog and I would like to thank all who have visited the site and, particularly, those who have ‘stayed the course’ and passed comment.  Your support is valuable and is truly appreciated.

I am marking the occasion by re-publishing below  the very first post.  Unsurprisingly, at the time it was scarcely noticed –  just a handful of views and no ‘likes’.  Here you have it.

‘May is the month when the poppy brings a vibrant splash of colour to the garden.  Often, overnight, the furry green protective shell of the bud explodes, exposing the tissue-like petals of the new flower.  Backlit by the afternoon sun, the petals produce a palette of shades ranging from yellow to deep red.

  1. I missed your blog beginnings but I’m glad that you dropped into mine one day; I’ve thoroughly enjoyed following you and have learned a lot along the way. May your artistic endeavours continue to satisfy yourself and inspire others!

  2. Congrats! It’s lovely, but yes, the first post isn’t seen by very many people, is it? And then it builds and builds. I wish you four more years of artistic experiments, and community.

    • Many thanks Lynn. Maybe I shall have to slacken the pace somewhat to manage another four years, but certainly the experimentation will continue as long as I’m able!

  3. Beautiful celebratory images. Congrats on your Anniversary:)
