Mum:

It was a dull day, but here are a few pics showing how lovely and fat my clematis buds are, and how fab my strawberries are looking!

Also, the poppies are still flourishing.  They are a true salmon pink, although they look less salmon here.

All of them SO purty!  I am going to try again with the Poppies.....I am I am I am!

Strawberry plants look fat and sassy!

We have wild strawberry all over the place here in Oregon.  They do actually have berries on them which are about as big as a small pea.  They are a tiny burst of true strawberry flavor.

I’ve never tried them.

but as a child I was told never to pick poppies by my mother, because ‘they don’t last and the petals will fall off in hours’.  So I have never thought to test the idea.

I think your Mom was right.  I am a kleptomaniac when it comes to flowers......when I see them I want to cut them for a boquet
