Holding on for dear life

Daughter, grandson, and I walked over to the other grandparents’ house in the afternoon. On the way, I spotted a bush of these large, beautiful flowers which my plant app says are popppies. The wind was blowing at a good rate but I managed to get several shots, this one including a bee which didn’t seem bothered at all by the flowers whipping back and forth. It was a good first day.

    Those fabulous petals are reminding me of Marilyn Monroe and that famous photo of her over the subway vent. Well caught.

    Cool photo! However did you get that shot– and not get stung?

  7. I think those are Matilija Poppies. Aren’t they wonderful! They’re my favorite poppy next to the Iceland Poppy. I’m so glad you had a lovely first day and arrived safely!

  8. Beautifully captured Janet!

    These are spectacular flowers, we see them a lot in northern California. Some folks call them fried egg poppies. Great photos, Janet.

    Flowers are inspirational. They often look like gowns. These are gorgeous, Janet.
