Dear Poppy,

Thank you for blooming. Last night you were still holding it all in and sometime between then and this morning you have opened, burst, shed your shell. Your happy shout of color marks two years here for me. The first morning I woke in this Ohio home I was greeted by poppies. Thank you for returning year after year and thanks to the someone who planted you. You make me happy.

Yours Truly,

Beautiful poppy. I've been waiting all month for my favorite tree to blossom. I might have to throw a party when it bow knots, strawberries with sugar, boiled eggs.....

Lovely. A definite sign of the end of May!
