One of the kindest men in our neighborhood always grew poppies in front of his house. He would, after the bloom, give me seed every year…like clockwork. This spring he walked out of his house and fell dead. I miss this friendship – even if limited to the distribution of seed and the look of his garden…..This image is for him.
AND THESE ARE HIS POPPIES……

    OOO OO OOOOO!!! Jeff .. I was all set to make one of my usually flippant and overly exuberant comments … I LOVE poppies (do hope ours bloom this year) and your treatment with the glorious colors in your sky have my eyes dancing … but read your note about your neighbor … I’m so sorry. What a lovely and fitting tribute to your friend. Awesome.

  • Thanks Lois. He was the nicest man….

    beautiful composition, the texture on the sky makes it so much more dramatic :))

  • Thanks Fiery-Fire….one of the nice things about RB is that when you check out the art of someone making a comment you find other gems….and your port has them.
