6/30/18: I will be shutting down Aleka Art Work in a few weeks. I have another site which will include many elements of AAW. See you there!
These are some poppies that have appeared, unbidden, in my garden. Lovely and fragile, they are a welcome surprise and I hope they are portents of beautiful things to come, in my garden and in the world–there can be no surfeit of beauty in the world.
