Yellow Poppies are apparently weeds!
I spent sometime with Evelyn this afternoon … everything I said was wrong and I heard her saying things to me that I have heard her say about other people – generally I find that if one individual comes up against the same barriers with several individuals it is not the several putting the barrier in place!
I have spent time getting rid of the weeds between her paving – she is surrounded by neighbours who go out and do their own gardens but never offer to help her out … now one of them apparently has told her that I am completely wrong and those are not yellow poppies I have left in situ they are weeds and I should have removed them. I have asked her three times if she dislikes them and she says no they are bright and cheerful so I have suggested that they are therefore not weeds because she is happy to have them in her garden.
I am not sure whether it is her being curmudgeonly or her neighbour stirring things up but honestly does the world not have bigger problems than whether an old lady grows yellow poppies in her garden?
