I thought you might enjoy these snaps of a little piece of waste ground opposite our house. The poppies simply sing with colour and are a joy to behold.

It is pouring again today so Giant Baby and I are holed up inside with the lights on at 10 o'clock in the morning. I have promised a spot of Mr Tumble in a mo which should free me up to whizz through a little high-speed housework. Thank goodness for BBC iplayer on days like these!



  1. Poppies are guaranteed to cheer up any bit of waste ground on which they appear. I've never intentionally grown poppies but I've had some Welsh poppies appear in my garden this year. They must have come in on the wind.

  2. Such a gorgeous splash of color for an empty piece of land! Poppies are one of my favorite flowers.

  3. It's great where poppies end up isn't it, they certainly brighten up that patch! Ada :)
