Poppy fields

Jenny and I went out yesterday to visit Katie on The Art Tour. It was a lovely sunny day, and I had to stop the car and take the photo opportunity when I saw this field of poppies at Corbridge. It was really dramatic.

Looking south.

We went up to Langley and were so inspired by all Katie's creations in her shed that I forgot to take any photos. Visit her at here and see what you missed. Still another 2 or 3 weekends to go, why not pop along.

We stopped of at The Station at Langley for tea and scones. It was so busy with another Art Tour event, we found a quiet corner in the shade to sit and relax.

I got some sewing done too over the weekend. The Wish upon a Star quilt top is eventually finished.

My delphiniums have finally flowered so here is a quick photo before the kids next door knock the tops off with their football!!

I love poppies, my favourite flower. I wish I could have seen that field in person.
