"Through the dancing poppies stole,
A breeze most softly lulling to my soul"
John Keats

"And far and wide, in a scarlet tide,
The poppy's bonfire spread"
Bayard Taylor

I have been dog-sitting this week for my (second) favourite niece, Ellie. I decided to take my camera with me today up the "bumpy lane" to try and capture the beautiful sea of poppies which borders the walk. They are so stunning, I don't think these photos will do the scene justice. But you'll get the gist!
Spot my friend Caroline's old house in the fifth picture down (what a view she had growing up!) and see if you can see the Forth Bridges in the pictures underneath. What a peaceful time I am having and Ellie (the big lump of love) is a joy to be around.
