Wordless Wednesday: Poppies!

I had stopped doing Wordless Wednesdays back in January, but I decided to resume them at least for the duration of the pandemic. I don’t know about you, but looking at pretty pictures gives me a moment of peace, and I could sure use a moment of peace at least once a week.

That made me wonder… what if my best strategy for surviving an apocalypse is not merely to stockpile food, but to learn how to grow it?
