New Bloom

Before I had my morning coffee, I stepped out into the garden. What I saw took my breath away and I was stunned by this beauty of a poppy! I only wish that these photos did it justice, but truely it is so much more beautiful than I have been able to capture. A friend gave me a division of this plant last summer but it didn't "move" well and didn't bloom for us. We had to wait a year to see this about worth the wait!

You know...It kind of looks like it is saying "Hello". It really does. :)

I think Poppies are so pretty....but I hate their stems, the colors are so vibrant in this one.

Wow - can't imagine it being much more beautiful in real life. It is a lovely photograph by a very talented photographer.
