It’s Saturday afternoon here in Oz and I am having a catch up on the site.
This is a gorgous poppy and not forgetting the bee. Such a very special picture
in Remembrance.
Tut Tut Tut for the lady bringing seeds into the country. Don’t get caught bringing
seeds into Oz otherwise you can be fined…..WinkWinkWink

She choose yours right away as one she liked.
She says the shadow makes it look as if the flower is ripped.
