Friday's Flowers revisited.

I stopped to ask permission to traipse around in someone's yard to get a shot of these beauties. The lady of the house was more than gracious; her reply, 'Why not?!' We both agreed that this is an unusual color departure from orange poppies.

I thought her generous and hearty response to me was worth taking to heart in life as well.
Why not, indeed?
That we find a crystal or a poppy beautiful means that we are less alone, that we are more deeply inserted into existence than the course of a single life would lead us to believe. John Berger

These are poppies?! Wow.
We also like to say in Hebrew "Lama lo?" --why not?
Nice quotation.

Your previous posts are all lovely and interesting too.

Those may well be the most beautiful poppies I've ever seen.... I may need to google for their name.
Thank you and your neighbor!
