I love buying flowers, though am a hopeless at arranging them. They bring a lightness and brightness to a room and lift the spirits on a dull day. I picked up these poppies the other day, and have loved seeing them go from bud to bloom.
The title comes from the quote below from Colette. Things didn’t collapse at the sight of these poppies, but I know exactly what she means.
“It’s so curious: one can resist tears and ‘behave’ very well in the hardest hours of grief. But then someone makes you a friendly sign behind a window, or one notices that a flower that was in bud only yesterday has suddenly blossomed, or a letter slips from a drawer… and everything collapses. ”
