And Let There Be No (More) Moaning . . .

Wednesday, June 08, 2011

Yup, feeling good again: muscles have stopped shrieking.

And: is there anything better than that?

Plus my Oriental poppies will be in bloom any moment!! They do actually pop, with those sepals springing away from the silky folded blossoms inside . . . it's amazing to see, and I'm hoping to be present for at least one of those pops!!

Summertime . . . ahhh!!

    OK, many requests for poppy pictures and I'm so technologically challenged:

Will you let me off the hook with this link??


(Yes, I do have both the bright scarlet and the "watermellen" pink!!)

    Poppies! I emoticon them!
And non-screaming muscles - that's good too!

    Ah no more soreness, that is good.
I agree, pictures of the poppies would be lovely.
Enjoy both.

    Glad your muscles have stopped moaning. Your description of the oriental poppy opening is so delicious ... and of course they are exquisite. Yesterday, I cut a rose and placed it in the bathroom, in a tiny votive of water. This morning when I went in the whole room was fragrant with it's perfume. It was wonderful just to inhale.

    I would like summer better if it wasn't 100 degrees outside.

    Oh you lucky dog you!!! I am so waiting for the garden to be safely fully planted and for things to start growing, let alone flowering! Wish you could get a video of these poppies opening up, wouldn't that be cool?? I would settle for photos, though, as I love flowers!! We have reached our high today, 66F, was as low as 44 this morning. I just did a blog of all the flowers I saw at a special greenhouse, restaurant and gift shop, a trip out we don't make very often because its out of town and the gas prices are just too high :(
Have a wonderful Wednesday!

    Great blog! I'm waiting for the Dahlias & lilies to open. Right now my grasses and lambs ear are adding great color to the yard. I'm with you summer & spring are. Hope you're there when your Oriental poppies are popping.
