ABC Wednesday
March 13th, 2013

The letter this week is I

And after I have thought about the lovely Iris, about which /who I have written before, my mind is immediately  full of the sweet, delicate
 
 Icelandic poppy

 
They grow prolifically wherever I scatter wildflower seeds. and come back to bring colour and pleasure to the garden each year. 


 
What could be more graceful than a bed of fragile poppies blowing in a warm summer breeze!!!!!


They have a lovely innocence about them, and together with blue batchelor buttons and little white popcorn flowers they make a perfect picture.

I knew what these beautiful Poppies were even in the tiny thumbnail!
Perfect for the letter I.
We have much smaller and more monotone Poppies here and they are just starting to burst into bloom along hillsides and highways, they are our State flower the California Poppy!
Have a good week and thanks for making ABC Wednesday so pretty and bright!

The last photo reminds me of that time of year when there is suddenly and explosion of colour, beautiful. I love how poppies spread themselves around.
