While walking the dog, I found these poppies in a neighbour's garden. I was delighted at how these poppies were complemented by the maroon leaves of the smokebush and I had to return home for a camera.

update. I wish all my posts were as popular as this one. This photo has been reblogged over 26,000 times.

Ooh! I want a smokebush, AND poppies! I love their papery-look.

Oh, I've seen these in a neighbors yard and can only stand there agog--what colors and complimentary ones at that.
Haven't visited for ages but I'm happy to be in your presence again.
Have a lovely weekend!

Would that be the same as 'saneness'? lol

The gorgeous pink and black casts a spell. I'm lucky enough to have a smokebush... and it planted itself in my front garden. Was very pleased to see it had arrived. :)
