Post No.2145 - Abstract Poppies - SUMMERTIME LOVE

Abstract poppies today - Poppies are SUMMER for me - I love them.
Abstrakte Mohnblumen heute - Mohnblumen bedeuten SOMMER für mich - ich liebe sie.
 Here are the lovely poppies 2 buildings  away  - every year they are blooming so beautiful!
Hier sind die liebenswerten Mohnblumen zwei Häuser weiter, die jeden Sommer wunderbar blühen.

"There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart."
In einem dankbarem Herzen herrscht ewiger Sommer.
~ Celia Thaxter

  8. Oh my! What a wonderful page! I love poppies too! We tried to grow a larger variety but they didn't produce any flowers! Hugs, Chrisx

  9. This painting is stunning and beautiful. I have to admit I've never seen a real poppy. Just ones in photos and on the web. So to read that poppies mean summer to you surprised me. That's the second time this month I've been surprised by a theme or post I never considered. You have truly been thinking outside the box, dear, and I love it. Thanks for being so supportive of my summertime love theme at AJJ.

  10. I love poppies too but I can't get them to grow. Your abstract poppies are gorgeous, as the ones near your home. The orange is so beautiful. And I love the quote. Celia Thaxter (the author of the quote) was a woman from New Hampshire and lived local to my home. Its great to see a quote by her. Hope your trip to Vienna is LOTS of fun and you laugh a lot. I hope you buy yourself a treat. :) Hugs-Erika
