The poppies are beginning to form their flower buds.

Lake Michigan is in a grey mood.  Beautiful too.

And some photos of poppies by Karl, from another year.

I am enjoying this practice of taking photos and looking back at our archives.  Thank you for all your encouragement – views, likes, comments.

One of my favorite paintings by Georgia O’Keeffe is of a red poppy.  When I first saw these flowers here, I thought, “They look just like her painting.”  Then I thought, “No, it’s the other way around!”

Blessings, Ellen
