Annual tradition

It has become an annual tradition to receive flowers from my lovely mum on my Birthday. Last week I watched as the poppies gradually popped open, revealing their papery petals. I just couldn’t resist photographing them in the afternoon sunshine.

Thanks again mum, I loved having a little pop of colour in our house! xoPoppies and TulipsPoppies and TulipsPoppies and Tulips

  1. Oh, they are so beautiful. I always think poppies and tulips are spring in a vase and they remind me of the time of year you were born. A happy time!Their colours brighten a room and they seem to reach out to you as they open. Big hugs Mum xo
