    Poppies are such amazing flowers – the way they open, it’s almost like when a tiny bird hatches from an egg ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thank you for taking the time to photograph this poppy and showing us.
    Have a very HAPPY day ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I have so many poppy pictures as the beauty and variety continually drew my attention and kept me opening the window or going outside to take “just one more photo.”

      My day will be extremely busy once more but at the end of it, the house (and 28 years of “stuff”), should be ready for the arrival of the movers tomorrow morning. Although that will make me a bit sad, it will also make me happy! I hope you have a wonderful day.

    very good idea and good photos. If you like take a look at my poppy-photos

    • I’d love to…when I have a bit more time. The movers arrive tomorrow morning, so our day is going to be taken up by more packing and cleaning. Thanks for stopping by. I hope I may return the visit one day soon.

    Beautiful! But you left out the next step: The transformation into opium ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just kidding!

    That’s a great idea! Poppies sure don’t last but they’re beautiful when in bloom.

  7. Poppies. Poppies will make them sleep. Beautiful photos, Janet.

    shalom,

    • Don’t need poppies to make me sleep these days, Rochelle. And I think someone might have stolen my brain. Any ideas? (I can’t have any if I don’t have a brain.) ๐Ÿ™‚

        Lovely shots and a very creative idea to follow the poppie’s through their short but sweet life.

      • I’m glad you enjoyed the photos. I’ve been planning to do this since the poppies bloomed but just hadn’t gotten around to it. Yesterday felt like the day for some bright, cheerful colors.

    I told a new gardener that it’s really easy to start poppies. She has the same poppy as in this picture and she wants to propagate. I checked on her at the end of the poppy season what she did with the heads. She proudly say she already buried them all. Imagine the whole head. Needless to say, we dug them all up and break the head open to release the seeds. I love poppies.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
