I gave out a yelp of delight today while walking up the path to water the glass-house, not something that often happens to me. I was looking at the orchids in the meadow on the left hand side of the path and suddenly something caught my eye on my right. It was one of the first poppies that I have run through the artichokes. It was such a delight to see. I have three out today and can not wait to see more come over the next few days. This is the sort of thing that makes it all worth while for me, I am not a man with many needs.
