In these grey, cold days of January, we have the time to notice the smallest details of the horticultural world. The other day, I spied a small bunch of poppies at the market looking limp and lifeless in the bottom of a box. Who knows where poppies are growing at this time of the year, but all they needed was a quick snip and an inch or two of water. And so the show begins … amazing from a distance, but astounding through a micro lens.
