NapoWriMo 2016 – Day 6: Purple Poppies


A purple poppy
Picked from paternal pa’s porch
Pops! Perfect present.

Based on a true story. My Mum brought me a gift of some poppy seeds years ago; offspring of some that my great grandfather had first planted in his garden. I grew some, and they were a delicious purple colour. I still have some seeds from the batch I grew – time to get sowing my heirloom plant, methinks (hope they’re still OK).
