On a whim, I took a little drive to the country this evening, past the house where Sheila spied some poppies last spring.

Happy birthday to ME because I found them. I even rang the doorbell to ask permission to shoot; no one answered, so I went ahead and snapped a few photos.

How could anyone not love poppies?
