Friday flowers

Or, Floral Friday.

First one will be a profusion of poppies, a plethora of poppies, .................

Ok, I'll stop with this nonsense. There is a word for this kind of thing; but it's not the one I have in my head at the moment.
Anyway, something new for me. This might last as regular feature; or might not. But for now, I give you,


Friday Flowers 









Ok, let me know if you prefer Friday Flowers, or Floral Friday.

Have a great day, and weekend.
