Rain Water Collector, Penryn River and Blue Poppy

05 Jun

1   Walking along the road, close to the wall in Penryn this morning, I spotted a unique rain-water collector – not conventionally ‘beautiful’ but anything that pleases me and makes me smile makes it onto these pages!

Please read carefully and enjoy

    Thanks for sharing your blue poppy with us. It is much appreciated as none of our five reappeared this year. Malc

      It’s the first time ours have flowered in the three years we have had them so you can imagine our delight! 🙂

    You just gave me a good idea to start saving rain water for my plants. I should have thought of this sooner. We have had a nice rainy spring, now watch it dry up!! 😉

    Such a rare beauty to behold. It’s a first for me (the poppy).

    I’ve just started following your blog, but this post really made me smile. It’s nice to know that there are other people out there that find the beauty in the smallest things like I do. Thanks for sharing!

      Gorgeous isn’t it? We’ve had it for three years and this is its first flowering. There are three buds. So pleased. 🙂
