a poppy

in Beth Chatto's gardens

I took this en route to Suffolk in May. I think my camera should now really be 'confined to barracks' for a while as I have so many photos.

Gorgeous capture of this beauty. I am sure we all have hundreds that we would like to post. I too cannot help taking more everytime I go somewhere 😉

I love the delicacy of this bloom - a quality I don't often associate with poppies...

Oh Hazel this is so beautiful.

I’ve been there. Lovely shot.

This is a lovely poppy :)

Lovely the striations in the petals. I know the feeling of needing to retire the camera to catch up. I tend to take pictures in spurts and then try to catch up with processing. Makes the one a day idea hard to hold to, so I've given myself permission to post photos from several days, or even weeks, past when I am able to get to them.

Joanne, yes, I tend to post freely time wise now, after more than 7 years on 365. I have cut down a bit on the number of photos I take but do tend to take my camera everywhere!

I know what you mean. There were two of these poppies and to me they look as if a bit of white paint was stirred into the red!

Such a delicate poppy, you can see through those pretty petals, gossamer like, a very upper class poppy!
