I spent Mother’s Day in Longwood Gardens, soaking up colors and fragrances. Huge red poppies were blooming by the square fountain. I found all the stages of opening of the flowers fascinating. These huge poppies look so fragile, especially when their petals are still a bit crumpled, but they remind me so much of butterflies emerging from their cocoons.
There will be more to see from my visit to Longwood Gardens. May I invite you to visit my sister’s blog, Awa on the Road, to see what she admired there last year? A year ago we stopped at the same fountain but different colors of poppies were in bloom 🙂
