poppies














poppy

My Uncle Alan used to grow poppys in our front yard. They took up three quarters of the space and he would stand out in the middle sidewalk watering them for hours, it seemed, in the evenings. Alan's poppies were red and the circus tent centers fascinated me from the time I was small. I didn't know what was under the bigtop back then.... The tightrope.
