Pink Poppies

I have finally remembered to take the camera on our walk up to the lock.

Although I am familiar with the huge red ‘opium’ poppies that grew quite rampantly in Lincolnshire fields as well as our back garden, I have never seen pink ones like these.
At first I though they’d been bleached by the sun, but looking at those about to burst forth from their pods to bloom, these are definitely Nature’s pink.

Could it be something to do with the acidity in the soil as with hydrangeas? (google image)

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
