Summer Lovin'

I have been just rolling around (literally), adoring my poppies.
Obsessed. Infatuated. In Lust.
This fling is all the more intense because I know that it can't last.
Petals fall before my eyes...

My Muse.
I (tried) to paint her here.

The final moments

Powerless to stop the breeze or hold her petals up.

The view from below.

A fleeting romance, but the sweetest of courtships.


  1. oooh lovely that first purple poppy is wonderful, i too have a poppy fetish so much i named our first daughters second name poppy, sophie poppy. If you have them in your garden when the flowers fall off cut them back about 3 -4 inches to the ground and your get a second flowering later in the summer, learnt that off gardeners world last year and it worked.

    1. What a lovely name! Very interesting tip there! I will have to try that...I'll let you know how it goes. Thank you!

  2. Beautiful photos! We have the same purple poppies in our garden. x
