Cricket #MySundyPhoto

I took a moment to sit outside with a book. Looking up a cricket was watching me. How could I resist not taking 20 a couple of photos, before it disappeared?

Almost looks like it’s made of wood.

Bee meets Poppy

For some reason, the bumble bees seem more determined to visit the poppies when they closed up in the evening. More of a challenge. Once inside they buzz as if they stuck, only to reappear in no time.

This bumble buzzed me after a while, so I backed off. It was just posturing rather than being agressive. Soon went back to the poppy.

I love watching them. Regular readers please forgive me for yet another photo of a poppy. I can’t resist. They don’t last long and I am enjoying them.

Happy Summer Solstice

First poppy flower opened yesterday in our garden. A dance of joy. Everyone dragged out to admire.

First petal fell today. Oh. Too soon….

Sigh.

There is always a silver lining. Just a question of looking.

Like the arrival of a poppy flower fairy. Must be the first of the year.

Happy Solstice!
