Poppies


Sometimes a laid-back approach to gardening and maintenance can be a good thing. These bright poppies appear to have self-seeded into the cracks and gaps of the Yorkshire stone paving, creating this impromptu garden on the edge of the pavement, along one of Saltaire's streets of terraced houses.
