Busy Bees

I haven’t posted any pics for such a long time – I’m afraid ‘life’ intervenes – as it does for everybody of course, but it gets more frequent as you get older! It isn’t as if I’ve been completely inactive with my camera, for when I couldn’t get out and about, I still did indoor shots, but couldn’t sit long at my pc without getting migraines etc But, no matter, and you don’t want me to add my woes to your own!! I love my photography and thank the Lord every day for His gifts and it’s great to have this blog to share them on.

I also have my pics on Flick’r – if you are interested, just do a search for Flick’r Eileen Thompson and it should find me.

Anyway – I will endeavour to post more now ….

Ah – Those Poppies …

 

Pink Poppy

 

 

Would you believe it ?  This poppy [Papaver Patty’s Plum] that was dying off almost in opening bud stage, has suddenly spread  its petals wide open – the evidence of decay can be seen around the edges. But still, it is looking beautiful and the decay has a cetain ‘je ne sais quoi’  don’t you think?

Pale pink Poppy

I have two other poppies coming out now, one a bright red/orange [Papaver Allegro] and this one – a very pale pink [Papaver Carneum] Again – it is not fully open so I shall be watching its progress closely ….

Another of my favourite flowers is the Iris. I planted a gorgeous one last year called ‘Nel Jape’ but there’s no sign of it now – maybe the slugs got it … which is unfortunate because the label says ‘hardy and perennial, lasting for many years’ !!  [I always hang on to the labels]
