thriving in isolation

This poppy on the banks of the Loire is several months ahead of its time.  And it was the only one in the vicinity (or anywhere else as far as I know).  By June they should be everywhere but this one confirms my hope that they are on the way.


  1. What a gorgeous, glowing hue of orange! We are enjoying the intense yellows of daffodils and forsythias, along with a bumper crop of shockingly purple crocuses on our daily walks, which fortunately are not yet limited. They are also ahead of their normal bloom time, but it gives a sense of hope that this too, will pass--just not fast enough..It sounds as though you are thriving in isolation as best you can. Bon courage to you both!

  2. Great photo and so appropriate for the times.
