An oasis of poppy calm in a mad rush of writing and making posters (not as exciting as it sounds, if only it could be done in crayon...) for work.
These poppies are from last year. I haven't seen so many this year and that makes me a little sad. But on the plus side, I have a load that I haven't even gotten round to looking at from last year. That is definitely something to look forward to. There is something pleasing about the colour blocking and overlapping in this image. I think it captures the essence of poppies, such delicate stems on their own, with their crumpled tissue-like skirts, but together, they are a mighty force. An entity united in colour and standing strong in their own ethereal splendour. Ephemeral and yet eternally captured.
