  2. Beautiful and fun shots. Thanks for sharing on what appears to be a nice sunny day for you, Dakota and I can't go walking the yard cause it has been raining all day.

    1. Linda I love red poppies but they do not grow nearly so easily for me as the yellow ones do and the yellow is so bright and cheery. Hope you have a good weekend Diane

    1. I am lucky that there are generally some bugs around to help me out and yesterday was not too windy which helps. Diane

    1. Thanks Gaelyn but the cherries may still have a problem. Quite a lot of rain is forecast and it could cause them all to split as it did last year and we had none :-(( Diane
