Wheelie Wednesday - Poppies

Hi everyone! It's me, Autumn!
Mom's very favorite flower in the whole wide world is the poppy!
She just loves the fragile tissue-like petals with the striking black centers!
The salmon ones are just as pretty as the pink ones!But the orange is her very favorite color! What a breathtakingly beautiful flower!
This red-orange poppy is so striking in the garden with all of the other colors!
This picture is for Ludo! He wanted an up-close picture of the lupines!
Here's another one for you, Ludo!
See you all next Wednesday!

Love, Autumn

What gorgeous flowers, Autumn! You have sooooo many flowers! Do you see a lot of snakes in your yard? Our mom saw one about 3 feet from the front of our house when she was trimming the bushes. She screamed loud enough for the whole neighborhood to hear! Now, she's paranoid every time she goes out the front door!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

Our Mom is drooling over your beautiful flowers. Poppies remind her of her grandmother who always had beautiful flowers, especially the red-orange poppy.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday.

I just can't help thinking about the wicked witch of the west with those poppies. I hope your mom isn't a witch. You might try pouring water on her and see what happens.

Slobbers,

your garden is looking so pretty!

Our red poppies are just coming into flower plus the blue geraniums, I will Jeannie to take a picture for your Mama!

It is warm and sunny here, hence our silence, because we have not been commenting much or blogging, making the most of the warm summer weather!

We are still thinking of youse all though!
