Poppies poppin

On my iMac screen there was a photo of a poppy - so good, I took it as a challenge.
In our veggie garden, they do pop up and pop out!
Three good things:
1. Thought this plant had finished but today two flowers popped up!
2. Biked down to a place where an orchard was selling fruit. They had sold out when I arrived - about 2 hours after start. Only small apricots and cherries that were mainly bad left but they didn’t charge me anything. Picked the best.\
3. Luxury Escapes.
Love seeing these summery pictures while we are freezing here! Poppies always surprise, they pop up without warning! Lovely day here but very cold. Luxury escapes sound especially nice!

I agree with Pat. Nice to see summer flowers.
Cold here, showers of hail and sleet...

Yes I am with the others - lovely summer flowers - while bleak and cold here - roll on summer - but will have wait a little I am afraid !

@julzmaioro Last year the whole vegetable garden was covered in poppies! We dug it over and poisoned a lot as they came up and this one was the only one left!

@maggiemae Save the seed pods and sprinkle them in places that you would like them ..

@julzmaioro A good idea though all of our garden is now covered in weed mat but I could make a little circle!

@happypat I would love blue poppies, Pat - but couldn't get them to grow! Doomed to have purple ones forever!

Gorgeous colour, those petals look like lovely crushed silk.

@happysnaps That's the idea Valerie - to capture that crushed silk look! Thanks!

Lovely to see these pops of colorful flowers.

Love the colors. Especially like the beautiful center of the flower, such a wonderful star/sunburst. Mother nature's detail is amazing!
January 18th, 2019  
@mccarth1 I think too, Kerry that the centre of the poppy has its own special beauty!

@janemartin I think this colour of poppies would interest those who manufacture drugs - don't tell anyone! Seem to be quite safe here though!
January 18th, 2019  
These are gorgeous and fab color too! Fav.

Beautiful shot. a fav. I love it when a flower blooms after I think it is finished blooming.
