I've never quite seen anything like it; it's beautiful. Is it from your yard? Wonderful picture.

Gorgeous poppy, the seeds I threw on the ground are flowering but nothing like this!!!

We had these poppies growing in our garden a few years ago. They had huge ruffled flowers...like the ones that we used to make from tissues.

Lovely capture. Alas, they are quickly over, so you are making the most of it!

Those flowers will come upp here after a half of year, after our dark winter. Very beautiful pic ! It makes you to really wait what kind of flower there is coming !

It looks huge in comparison to your porch. I like that you are showing it before it's opened - celebrates the early stages, too. :)

Very unusual sight of a poppy, what a good idea.

The shriveling is awesome. It is so like a newborn.

Peggy said...

Oh, I love it.

Scribbler said...

Hah! Just the right time. Nice shot. Is it the one with double/multiple petals?

Beautiful. I just love your picture. Here, I dont get to see poppy flowers.

Mimi said...

Oh I LOVE poppies, tried to grow them once, but failed.

Wow, that IS an impressive shot. So fetal looking, but then, poppies often look skinlike.
