Poppy and the Hover Fly.

By Mollycat
The poppy was turning itself inside out with the slightest breeze, and had completely vanished by late afternoon. Then popped
up this morning.

My thanks for looking in on the ' Coat Hangers ' on Saturday, especially Ken (franken), Jan, Leo, Dave (Mistere),
Steve (Sparrowhawk), Nev, Vince, Dave HobbitDave) and mile for your valued UA's.
