Nearby gardens were full of flowers and this unusual poppy caught my attention ... well, there were about a dozen of them! All huge blooms and in a most unusual shade of not quite pink, not quite raspberry, not quite sure what colour you'd call it!
So now, after a very wet journey home through constant heavy rain I'm about ready to put the computer to bed, have a warm drink and go to sleep. Sunday will dawn all too early!
Cast your eyes upon us, O Lord,
and hide us under the shadow of your wings,
that, trusting not to our own works
but in the refining fire of your compassion,
we may come to see you face to face;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
