bon anniversaire david


I grew up in lands that (as far as I know) have no wild poppies. I am still amazed when I see them on the road verges. They remind me of artificial raffia poppies and, for some reason, of presents. The kind you wrap up and give away.

The above poppy is growing on the side of a farm field in Picardie.

It’s David’s birthday today, so here’s wishing him many happy returns!  A strange thing happened to me today: I phoned him at 8:30 this morning, and we spoke for a few minutes. I didn’t realise at the time it was his birthday.  A few minutes later I phoned Spenkers at work and of course she mentioned it was his birthday. Then at 9:00 my ‘birthday alarm’ went off. Woups.
