Busy lives . . .
However, here at 830 Altura we have a superbloom of our own going on on a small scale:

the poppies are closed up for the day, taking shelter from the wind
The yard is a riot of poppies. Just gorgeous! But in the days to come I will be removing many of them from our raised beds, in order to plant edibles—which will bring sensory pleasures of their own, if in a different way. Getting a bit of a late start because of my travels, but as they say, better late than never. Fortunately, our growing season is long.
