Poppies and Sky

Well, I will have to admit, I photoshopped this image from 3 different pics I took. Because I liked the morning sky, and I liked the upshot of the poppies.

I do love these poppies, they are like rubies glowing in the sunlight. They are called "Cherry Glow", the seeds were an introductory offer from Thompson and Morgan.

I agree with the others here ... who cares if it's a Photoshop job when the end result is that beautiful!

I really like the new banner picture you have at the top of the page too, and the use of different text colours on different days. Your blog gets better and better every time I visit!

Thank you all for your encouraging comments! I felt a little like I was cheating.. *grin*
Resbie, thanks. I am a bit of a technophobe, but am catching on quite easily, fooling with the template computer-mumbo-jumbo-word-stuff. Thanks goodness there is a button valled "preview"!!
