Frilly Pink Things

I've posted out the 1st and 2nd Blog Candy prizes to Lisa and Tinkertaylor so watch for the postman!! However I am still waiting to hear from Wipso. I left a message on her blog via WOYWW but if anyone can give her a shout her 3rd prize is waiting for her.
Things are rather busy here caring for DH, post hip hop, but everything is going well other than the fact that we are both shattered. Can't complain as it gets easier every day and he's going to get betterer, and betterer, every day.. I hope to do a bit of crafting therapy very soon but in the meanwhile I'll post a few more ..... yes! you guessed it...... POPPIES! 
 (hello Dot, more for you!) I now know that they are called poppies because the pop up everywhere completely unannounced and today I received another surprise gift from Mother Nature that I had not planted. Keep them coming! This one is like a mop.... I'm sure they are all mutations.
I laughed when I saw my latest poppy as I had just found time to rustle up a couple of tutus for my 3 year old grandee to dress up in and there is a distinct similarity. 
I had to squash the skirts up as small as possible to get them posted and I can't wait to see a pic of her in them. Sadly the photo doesn't show the glitter thread on the overlocked hems or the sparkle of the holographic sequins. I'm sure she'll love them and have such fun playing in them.
I DID plant this lovely peony....
but this foxglove is another of Nature's gifts to me!

Hi Jo

I shall be looking out for the postman, thank you again, especially with all the other things you have to do at the minute.
I love your type of gardening, these poppies are gorgeous. We have been out garden visiting today and seen some beautiful poppies, almost jet black but frilly like yours. I shall post some photos when I get them sorted out.
Don't your tutus look just like them. I have a daughter who'd absolutely love these, trouble is she'd never take them off, I'm sure your Granddaughter will be thrilled to receive them, what a clever Grandma she has.
Take care of yourselves.
Love and Hugs Lisax
