100WCGU week #113 – Poppies

She’d been putting the gardening off long enough, but it was time to get it ready for the winter. It was somehow apt that this Remembrance weekend she was still waiting for the poppies, to be absolutely sure that they would grow again next year. Although the petals had long since faded, the seed pods were still intact and not looking like they were going to burst any time soon. It would be a shame, she thought, to not have poppies in the garden, so she carefully mowed and trimmed plants back around them, looking forward already to the splashes of colour next spring.
