Sun Spots

MrsM sees the other tourists
taking close-up pictures of the poppies
and sighs inwardly.

MrsM is so over that sort of photo nowadays.

MrsM considers an interesting mosaic
of the box hedging, green on green

Or maybe an artistic contrast between
the angles and the straight lines.

But when she gets closer she finds herself
strangely drawn to the poppies

and immediately changes her mind.

No shame in that.

  8. They are SO beautiful, the way they unfold to perfection, from their crinkled emergence, initially.
