. . . "can't stop, won't stop moving"
- Shake it Off, Taylor Swift
There was a little mayhem and chaos on my front porch this weekend as I tried to photograph
tulips and poppies. The wind, it just wouldn't stop moving. . .

. . . and the flowers and I couldn't keep up with all the grooving.
(Okay, so I'm really stretching this weeks song)
It probably started out in the thirties early Saturday morning, but because I had a bloom
on the poppy I went to the front porch in search of some light, and all I got was wind.
Now, I'm a pretty patient person, so I stuck it out for a little while, and then since I
just couldn't "shake it" I packed it in and came inside...with the plant.
That's when something magical happened, or at least for me. There were two buds that
were already split open, just enough to see the color and suddenly the pods popped off
and the flowers started to open like I was watching time lapse photography!
Literally, right before my eyes these flowers opened up, and it was magical!
I've never seen a flower open up that fast before, have you?
I would love for you to pop over here, to Focusing on Life, where I'm sharing
some thoughts on our new monthly theme (link won't be live til 3 am PST). And then why not
consider adding photos of the theme to our flickr group. You just may be
featured one Saturday morning on the blog!
