Surrounded By Flowers

“Through the dancing poppies stole, a breeze most softly lulling to my soul.”
John Keats

I could quite easily have laid down in these poppies and fallen asleep as Dorothy did in the Wizard Of Oz.  I didn't though. Luckily these poppies didn't have a magic spell put on them. Well not a sleepy one anyway. I think the spell Mother nature put on these is more a hypnotising enchantment because I just couldn't take my eyes off  them! The bees and butterflies coudn't either although you can't really see in the pictures.
Everywhere I look at the moment there are flowers, so it's not surprising I felt the urge to paint some.
Latest scraps of wood turned into flowery pendants.
No poppies here, but I'm sure they will find a way to sneak into my work somewhere, on something at sometime?
Hopefully next year there will be some in our little meadow area, that has come on well this year.


If you are interested in the pendants they will be heading over to here very shortly.
Enjoy the sunshine and flowers. x

  8. Lily-of-the-valley and poppy are my favourite flowers. I always wonder how poppies survive winds and rain! They look so fragile! A poppy field is magical and unearthly for me...
