Midweek Cheer

Now, at last, it feels like autumn. Not that I wanted the summer to end. Who needs rainy mornings, or that sudden recognition of chill at the door?

To redress the balance, here’s a beautiful orange poppy I bought in Bury St Edmunds market a few weeks ago. It’s still flowering – just.  A cheery smile as I left the house for work today!

Still Hanging On…

…but probably not for much longer.

Beautiful yellow poppies that flowered all summer and are still around even in November; they’re a cheering sight when I arrive home from work on a dark autumn afternoon. I hope they can stay around for a few more weeks, although they are looking somewhat tired by now. December?
