This beautiful poppy unfurled itself this morning in my kitchen window box. It found its own way there and I've watched it grow a little each day. Yesterday the goose-pimpled bud started to split a little at the edge and just show a tiny bit of the folded red inside. Today it delicately sat in the early morning sunshine like a flag, far more beautiful than any of the many flags that are adorning much of the country right now!
The tulips that are sitting, naked still, on the garden table have slowly changed colour.
They have a delicate pinky lilac tinge to them.
They've lain naked in the rain much of the week.
