Here it is! The first poppy spotted today, three days later than last year. Now all the rest will be just more of the same.
That splash of red! I was on the lookout for it the whole last week, knowing that it’s just around the corner: the first poppy of the year.
Today it finally happened. I spotted it from afar and it made me grin. Such a little cyclical matter and yet it’s calming to see that at least one cycle hasn’t been broken yet.
Except for the car, all the photos were taken in the last two days.
The last photo in the gallery – of my parents’ garden in Piran, Slovenia, where they are now – is especially special and I thank my father for taking me there: not only he took the photo and sent it to me, but he also repainted the table and the benches. And before that he built the legs for some new furniture.
This is how I found out that both of his grandfathers were cabinet-makers. It’s back to the roots, I see.
