What you see here is my very first blooming poppy (yep, that’s the one I posted about last time) – and another one with it. That must have been the second one, and I never got to see it in the garden. Why? Well…..
This morning I got up to feed Frida at 5:10 a.m. Ronja got up a bit later, and immediately got dressed, because she wanted to go out to play – early, yes, but no problem! When I had finished feeding Frida and was on my way upstairs to change her and get her dressed, I was just looking out the window to check on Ronja. And what did I see? Ronja with a bucket full of flowers she had picked, mostly tulips but among those was our very first blooming poppy – as well as the second one which must have come out today. I ran downstairs and out into the garden to tell her to please leave the rest of the flowers where they belong. Once I got outside she stood there with her wild morning hair, arranging the flowers on the garden table for me! 😉 What can you possibly say to that!
We agreed that next time she wants to pick flowers, she should check with me first, because if she picks my peonies once they start blooming, we may come to a more severe difference of opinion.
But it was actually really sweet of her and we put all of the flowers in water – now they’ll just last as long as they can.
