So long, ragged poppies….

A week or so ago, I posted an image of some poppies in bursting red health. Here’s the remaining two now:

These images were prompted by reading Laura Bloomsbury’s blog today, with a brilliant image of decay: , and this made me realise it’s a while since I posted any floral decay. So this is a return, of sorts.



  1. Sadly we all have our time. As ever Sue, you’ve captured botanical decay beautifully.

  2. It is! We have some plummy pink oriental ones just come out and I don’t think they’ll last xx

  3. I like the last photo best, Sue. We had the same poppies in our garden and they don’t have any leaves anymore. Have a nice day, regards Mitza

  4. Bye bye poppies. Sorry to see them go

  5. That second one has a jauntiness even as it heads for oblivion. May I die thus!

  6. Oh they are feisty in their decay Sue – like decorous old ladies in red taffeta. Thanks for the link up – will keep a weather eye out for more decaying beauties

  7. Lovely put by Laura! And you are a master of portraying them…

  8. Poppies are lovely form bud to decay, how lucky there was no breeze!

  9. Back to your ‘speciality’ with a vengeance, Sue. Nice work.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  10. The circle of life we are all a part of.

  11. Beauty in decay indeed…

Over to you...
