As usual, this time of year
the Annual Artist Studio Tour.
That is an Opium Poppy, (papaver somniferum).
When I was a very young girl I spent a lot of time out in the country side gathering food for our many rabbits.
Sooner or later I would run into a Poppy field.
Often the pods were almost ripe but not quite.
I would open a pod, empty the many seeds into my hand and hold my hand up toward the sun.
Within seconds the unripe and green seeds would turn into black poppy seeds, yes the kind you would sprinkle onto baked breads and cakes.
As soon as the seeds turned black I would eat them, all of them,
all at once.
Was that Euphoria I felt?
Wishing you a euphoric week my dear
