Over 30 years ago, my husband and I bought a house from a woman
who had beautiful gardens of perennials, including some striking poppies.
As we cleaned our garage this past weekend, Bill came across
this pen, ink and pastel picture I had done back then, carefully wrapped in paper.
It brought to mind my trip to Tuscany nearly 4 years ago,
where I saw amazing fields of poppies, growing wild.
And recently, I took a paper poppy class from the wonderful AnnMarie Gallivan,
where we manipulated and shaped ordinary red card stock into stunning blossoms.
Who can resist the richness of this beautiful flower?
My next post will be my last before taking a blogging break.
Home renovations coming soon!!
Have a wonderful week!
