Sweet Pea Pod, Poppy Seed Head and Horses Return

23 Aug

Sweet Pea Pod

1   The sun shining through the sweet pea pod shows the furriness of the pod in the sunlight and the little seeds inside – just beautiful!

2   The poppy seed heads are just opening to scatter their tiny black seeds everywhere – lots of poppies next year!

3   Much to our delight, the horses are back in the field behind our house. They are so beautiful!

    That’s it. I have to save up and buy a camera. I like my cell phone, mind you, it’s great for a cell phone camera…but it’s limited. I’m off now, to look through your beautiful photos for the next few hours…or days…;-)

      Thank you so much for your lovely comments! I hope you enjoy the photos you find!

      When there is a gallery of pictures, you can click on one and the series will very cleverly have the camera used and some detail (nothing to do with me I have to say! Clever WordPress!) 🙂

      Yes, aren’t we lucky to be able to enjoy their presence in the back field – and with none of the associated work?!

    I so love the horses. They are just so beautiful and they are always so lean, so solid.

    Do you know what I realise now – a bit slow I am, but I reckon, from all the pictures of flowers & pods & grasses & mosses & utter beauty beauty beauty you post, I think you’re living in a Heaven-on-Earth. You are in seriously rich & beautiful ground. Truly beautiful. Blessed! 🙂 And very much a blessing you every day appreciate it, & share it with us.

      I think you are right! I grew up in Cornwall and left for college at 18. We didn’t come home again (except to visit my Mum and Dad of course) until we retired and we are so, so happy to be home. I’m glad my delight conveys itself through my blog!

      We love the horses too and are so pleased to have them nearby again. For the last three months they’ve been in the top field where we couldn’t see them except for occasional long distance glimpses.

      Have a lovely and safe weekend

    Wow! I learn something new each time I drop by your blog!:) I’ve never seen a poppy seed pod! Back here in Singapore, it is banned.

      That’s interesting! When we lived in Yorkshire and had the poppies in the front garden, the green seed pods were often stolen before they got to the ‘drop-my-seeds’ stage!
      Thank you for your comments 🙂

      Hello again, thought you might like to see a poppy flower and the seed pod when it was first formed and still green, in this earlier post:
