Wednesday's in the Garden- Week 2

The family we bought our house from lived here over 30 years, and created the garden spaces that we use. I will admit there are more than I can cover in one season... and parts have grown wild for years. It has taken me a long time to come to peace with those areas, and just accept the gifts they sometimes give, like giant poppies that sway in the breeze.

Really beautiful!! I love those flowers. I love the Wednesday in the Garden idea - I might have to try that on my blog (since I'm finding it hard to write about anything right now - a picture speaks 1,000 words).
