June flowers-Day2


Today’s picture is a view into the heart of the sun-well, a magnificent oriental poppy. I can’t remember which variety this is nor where I got it from, but this magnificent beast, standing nearly 3 feet high, has started to promenade round the garden in a blowsy and flamboyant way, like a Spanish flamenco dancer. I love the sheer absurdity of the green hairy buds and the breath taking intensity of colour of the tissue-paper petals.

  1. Absurdity is a good way to put it!

    I personally think the Divine Designer has a crackpot sense of humor sometimes…(but the place it truly shows up is in the tropical fish department…)

    These daily pics will be a real treat. Keep ’em coming!
