The saying “busy as a bee” is spot on. I didn’t want to take too many of the poppy flower pods off the plant before they bloomed, but they are such a fabulous shape I couldn’t resist. I watched the pods split and fall away, the flowers start to open, and immediately the bees were working over the pollen. Those little insects work so hard.

My day is extra full today too — have already downloaded a bunch of paperwork, and still have a visit to the art supply store, food pickup, phone bank, and CLAM Annual Meeting.
