Summer Colours Week: Red

 Our first poppy. Miss Mouse and I planted these last year but nothing came up (I thought poppies were annuals?) but this looks like it'll be the first of quite a few.

Cat2 approves - there was a bee buzzing inside the flower. She couldn't figure it out so she had to have a look. As My Beloved points out this pictures makes the cat appear enormous - actually she's a small cat and the poppy stem isn't all that tall.

 Here's one from a few weeks back- the school building at the Highland Folk Museum -love the red roof and red 'phone box.

 And another from the same time - Miss Mouse heading for the paddling pool.

And finally salad with red peppers for my dinner. Mmmmmmmmmmm...

I never have any luck growing poppies. Yours is a beauty.

Red peppers on salad - a favourite of mine. Just had some tonight!

The poppy didn't last long unfortunately but there's another just about to open :-).
