The poppy's dark heart seems like it could swallow you whole or, at the very least, cast a spell on you if you ventured too near.
But I have an ulterior motive in presenting you with this colourful armload of blossoms. It's because I'm going away for a short while and I wanted to leave something lovely for you gaze upon in my absence. Really, you'll hardly even notice I'm gone. There are many bloggers amongst us who send up blog flares but once or twice in a blue moon and yet we still keep their blog memory alive in our hearts and on our blog rolls.
Tomorrow afternoon, I'll be locking up and heading off to Montreal for a few days to visit my daughter. There is hot weather in the forecast, as well as much walking, eating, and drinking anticipated.
Today I'll be organizing my bags: Apocalypse brand luggage (photographed in Pizzo, Italy)...when a traveller has to be prepared for anything.
Ciao ciao ciao!
PS. You don't think I'd leave you without a tune do you? Here's one I've had running on a loop in my head for a few weeks now.
