Poppies were blooming in Fort Worth yesterday straight out of the ground! I wasn't the only one to gather around their opening day! They were such a beautiful sight! I hope you enjoy them too!
May these poppies uplift your spirits today and give you something to smile about too. When you think about it, these short lived perrenial plants are very resilient. When they are ready to show up - they show up! Timing is everything.
I look at the Poppies and I see beauty! Perfection! Purity! Resurrection! Joy! High hopes!!! They are vivid in color and such a showy flower too! I am reminded of the cycle of life, to start life anew! These flowers range in colors of vermillion orange, red, pink, white and yellow. If there are other colors, I haven't been lucky enough to see them. Yet, I shall keep my eyes open. These colors are striking! Each blossom seems to have its own personality. Their petals look like crepe paper, fragile but strong! The stems are strong enough to withstand the wind. They are awe inspiring!
Oddly enough, I was expecting Poppies late spring but they came to Fort Worth, Texas on 1/31/2016. I guess you never know; therefore being in the right place at the right time is lucky! What would life be like without flowers or pleasant surprises? Life is good in all its heavenly hues. New growth beckons us to be alert for positive changes on earth. The sleeping beauty has arisen and my heart sings with joy!
