Low sun slides behind some Arctic poppies. As spotted in the outdoor Gardening department of a UK major retailer near Liverpool. The poppies were on the very top shelf of a trolley so I had to be on my tiptoes in order to get the angle. I did get some very odd looks!

    Do you have outdoor gardening departments, then, so that is the sun or a ceiling light? Did you lie on your back in the middle of the aisle? Much to admire here!

  • Hi Jan! This is indeed outdoors. I was actually on tiptoes as the poppies were on the very top shelf of a trolley. Glad you like !
