Today is much the same kind of day, a day that is perfect for laying in bed, catching up on reading, sorting out photos, visiting other people's blogs...the next best thing to being out in my garden, which will have to do without me for a couple more days.
If I haven't been to visit your blog lately, I'm taking a page from Gardening with Grace, with heartfelt apologies for my lack of visiting, and promises to make up for that very soon.
The black poppies against the blue sky full of fluffy white clouds,...beautiful!ReplyDelete
Have a great day and be well.
Honey, can I come visit? It's 104F here today. I don't want to lie in the dry crunchy grass. I really don't.~~DeeReplyDelete
Feel better soon, Jodi! Your black poppies are beautiful, especially surrounded by the other colorful blooms and the pretty sky. Very nice, even when you're under the weather!! Impressive!ReplyDelete
Wow! Really beautiful with the nise flowers:) Great pic!ReplyDelete
How nice to be able to spend a day lying around in bed. Enjoy it Jodi you deserve it.ReplyDelete
Beautiful. Jodi. :)ReplyDelete
Jodi, as a passionate poppy pursuer I am totally floored by those. Where do I buy them? They are annual, I had better spend more time with seed catalogues in the spring time next year, I am missing out.ReplyDelete
Take a break, everyone needs them from time to time.
That poppy is just to die for gorgeous. Pretty summer sky too. I hope you get to feeling better real quick.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful poppy! I love the colour!ReplyDelete
Hi Jodi. The poppies look so pretty against the blue sky. I am sorry you are under the weather. You get better now and have a wonderful weekend.ReplyDelete
Wow, what an incredible poppy! Perfect backdrop to showcase the colour. :)ReplyDelete
Jodi girl ! I have never seen black poppies before ! what on earth are they and where do you get them ? are they a secret ? I promise I won't tell anyone else (even though a few of us are asking about them wink wink : )ReplyDelete
I'm laughing at Dee's crunchy grass comment .. now that is HOT !
Take care and rest up girl !
That picture could have been taken here in Kansas...except for the current drought and the fact that the poppies bloomed over a month ago and that I can't grow things that beautiful.....jealous as always of your climate!ReplyDelete
Wow! They're fantastic! I want one! Paleeze don't make apologies for blog visits. Because then I might have to. Summer is such a crazy busy time. Hope you're feeling better, soon. :)ReplyDelete
haven't seen a black poppy before...ReplyDelete
~ Jo's Precious Thoughts ~
Love the color of the poppies and against the sky, a perfect combination. Hope you are feeling better.ReplyDelete
Hi Jodi, Enjoy your day of rest and hope you feel perky tomorrow. Gorgeous photo ... the clouds and blue beyond the dark burgundy ... wine... near black poppy is very dramatic as you no doubt noticed ... that is the sort of photo you can get really excited about. I love the seed pods too. There is something nearly ominous about it. In a beautiful way. ;>)ReplyDelete
I'm coming with Dee and will bring healing soup, jodi. To cheer you, this stunning photo might be one of favorites! Get well soon. Don't worry ... good friends are always on hold :)ReplyDelete
Stunning view Jodi, adore deep colours like this especially in the poppies. BTW Have a meconopsis flowering at the moment... a beautifl new pink one.ReplyDelete
Get well soon :-D
Hi Jodi dear, I'm sending healing thoughts your way. Although it's nice to have the down time it sucks when you can't do what you want because you lack the energy or you vomit when you stand up. It sounds like you're making the best of it and I'm wishing you much success on the photo reorg. I've got mine all into new folders but still don't have my foliage plants labeled. Methinks I'll be doing a lot more deleting. It just shocks me how many photos I have and surprises me how much better my newer ones are now that I've managed to employ the settings on my newer camera versus neglecting them on my old, lower pixel model, if that makes sense.ReplyDelete
Love the black flowers. You need one of those black aeoniums [that Barbarapc featured on her blog] for a perfect color echo.
Sending you hugs for the linky love too.
Gorgeous poppy against a gourgeous sky!ReplyDelete
Does that poppy have a name?
Hello Jodi, I hope you are feeling up to gardening again soon! That poppy shot is lovely, such deep rich colour that it is almost hard to believe!ReplyDelete
Sending my wishes for a speedy recovery too ... so that your garden doesn't miss you!ReplyDelete
Absolutely gorgeous shot ... it's a great contrast! The colour of that poppy is so rich and gorgeous! Appreciate your effort in posting this in spite of feeling poorly!
Wow, that's so beautiful, Jodi. I do hope you're feeling all better now...ReplyDelete
