I was weeding a while ago and thought I spotted a little clump of Poppy leaves in amongst the leaves of the weeds, so I decided to pop them into the Herb bath at the front door. Sure enough a few weeks later I have a beautiful Poppy to brighten my day. There is another little flower head about to open and hopefully by next year there will be a few more if the seeds are happy to stay there.
The flowers are always so short lived in their papery delicateness, but absolutely beautiful.
I did sell something over the weekend, this little painted chest. I've found that taking the time over the staging of the first photo of the Facebook Marketplace advert properly does make for quick sales.
A cup of coffee, an ice-lolly and a spot of people watching in the sunshine on the promenade at Morecambe with Alan and the dogs, a slightly tidier drawer, more space in my hallway and some money in the pot ... it's been a pretty good weekend.
