Inside Out

Of seeds and deeds

Poppy

“Don’t judge each day

by the harvest you reap

but by the seeds that you plant.”

Robert Louis Stevenson

Just fishing here. I didn’t help an old lady across the street today and I didn’t plant any seeds today because it’s way too cold for that. Oh, that’s not what you meant, Bob?

Well, I am still very much in hiding. We are now talking about the fourth wave coming at us. What good deeds could I do in light of that? Haven’t moved my car in a month, brought my own shopping bags, walked to the grocery store and library, didn’t buy any chicken or red meat… Will it make a difference? No.

Those poppies in our front yard got me dressed the other day. First, the seedpods were covered in fresh snow, but I could not get a good shot of that. Over time the snow flakes bonded and formed crystals in and around the seed pods. The poppy pictured above looks to me like a blossom again.

Happy planting.

    4th wave???

    We’ve just finished 260+ days of lockdown and curfew of the 6th wave here in Melbourne. Hurry up and catch up please. 😀

    But seriously, I think we’re all tired of this Pandemic and it doesn’t seem to want to go away anytime soon. If it’s not COVID it’s the wild weather here. The council/park ranger still hasn’t finished cutting up all the enormous fallen trees from a fortnight ago. So sad to see these massive trees damaged and lopsided.

    Nice shot of the poppy head. It almost looks like it’s made of steel with those shadows.

    Where are you physically located these days? I am assuming still way up north. The whole poppy thing threw me.

    You might want to consider lower resolution images in your emails … they take a long time to load!

    Hope you are well, we are heading south tomorrow for a few months. Happy trails!
