I really couldn't believe he let me get this close. He gripped the berry in his hands until the very last moment. While amazed and snapping photos I did have visions of him leaping from the branch into my hair. The memories of a recent dream of flying squirrels is still rather vivid in my mind. :)
The coveted prize.
Yesterday, while weeding in our back garden for the first time this season. (I know some of you are shaking your head in disbelief and disgust!!) I found this lone, slight stem. I was pretty sure it was a poppy that had seeded from our neighbour's garden. Although it had landed in a bit of a strange spot I weeded around it.
Today this beautiful poppy is starting to open up. I must try to plant these again. I just love poppies.
