The flowers that bloom in the spring
Breathe promise of merry sunshine —
As we merrily dance and we sing tra la,
We welcome the hope that they bring
Gilbert & Sullivan - The Mikado
I probably think of these lines from The Mikado every new spring season when the different flowers start to bloom.
Claudia from Mockingbird Hill has once again invited participation in her 'Favourite Things' Saturdays and what could be more favourite than having poppies growing in your own garden.
These ones are particularly special because of their unusual apricot colourings with soft yellow centres. The petals have folds in them like concertinas and that adds to their specialness. I can spy them from my bedroom window and watch their progress and that is rewarding too.
Thanks, Claudia, I look forward to linking up with other bloggers this way.
