Now if this plant grows feet and start walking about the garden I will be worried. There has been no meteor showers of late, has there? Although it does look like it is about to ballet dance around the flowerbed to me.

  1. I love the shadow behind the poppy in the first image – and clearly you do too to frame the shot including it! Terrific Pete!

  2. Lovely: at last I am able to identify the poppies that have cropped up unbidden in my garden for two summers in a row. The seeds must have blown in from somewhere in the neighbourhood.

    1. I have had red poppies grow here in the garden, although rarely, but these are the ones that do show more regularly, although it can be years between showings.


  3. Hahaa.. 😁😁 No need to worry, just enjoy the dancing flower while meteors raining like stars from the sky. Lovely image of a beautiful poppy! The color in the background emphasizes the flower very nicely.
