I'm still enjoying my poppies although they are past their prime now. Many of them have fallen over - good thing we have built the fence, otherwise the flowers would lie flat on the sidewalk by now.
I can't stop taking photos - both of the poppies and the fence. Recently I noticed the shadow of the fence with the poppies - that would be nice in black and white as well, with just the red of the poppies highlighted.
There are still the big papaver poppies around - or "opium poppies" as some call them. Last year the deer ate many of the seed pods - I guess we had some very happy deer for a short time!
And this is how it looks like behind the fence. Last Sunday, when I was out early in the morning, trimming back and cleaning out the flower beds, a woman who was passing by told me that my garden looks like a Monet painting. What a compliment! She certainly made my day!
I'm linking again to Theresa's Good fences over at the Run-Around-Ranch. I'm so glad I found her blog!
