One year ago today, I started my blog. I really didn't know I would stick to it for this long, but I'm glad I have. I love exploring this new art form, keeping writing and staying in touch with those who read it. Thanks, readers, for reading.
We are celebrating the opening of our Persian Princess poppy today. I like to think that the heat triggered some deep genetic memory of the hot air of Persia, and she opened to embrace it. With a bloom five inches across, she commands the garden today.
