This is the second day of open poppies. I went out to take a walk just before dusk and
caught the last of the western sun behind the flowers -- trying to woo them away
with its gold gold gold. They stayed put, natch. And oh, how beautiful! And just a little
later on the walk, talked to the woman down the street who has a large pond in her front yard, full of koi or carp, not sure, but many of them poppy-colored. The pond is leaking
and the woman isn't sure where the leak is. She goes out late at night with a flashlight
to make sure the fish have enough pond left to last until morning.
