I was thinking that people could not realise what beauty really is.
Poppies are a flower you can't possibly keep in a vase. They die instantly. Their beauty is their fragility and their temporariness, their contrasting red in a green field.
Beauty is to let them be!
Today, Sunday May 4th, just a couple of days later, we walked the seafront with our dog!
And there the poppies were back. Not as many as they were a week ago before the invasion of the May 1st seafront visitors but at least as beautiful.
And I breathed in the sea wind (the weather is getting worse and the forecast it too bad for the rest of the day again!) and I admired their beauty and took.....some photos of course!
As it was windy the poppies wouldn't sit still of course! I was prompted to take a first picture when I spotted a white poppy among all the red ones! Have you ever seen a white wild poppy?
