Me and my shadow – London, June 2008
About five summers ago, at our old house, I thought I'd try scattering a few poppy seeds in our pots. I have never planted the seeds since – the poppies simply seed themselves and come up in abundance year after year. I don't know who loves them more – me and my camera, of the big fluffy honeybees and their insatiable appetite for poppy pollen. These two elegant buds are just about ready to burst into crimson flower.
