Poppies   Leave a comment

We don’t have a lot of poppies around the county this year, so I decided to buy some.  A few tame poppies are not the same as an endless field of wild ones, but you can appreciate them as individuals.

Orange isn’t most people’s favorite color, but the glowing golden-orange of a California poppy is something else again.

It’s hard to capture the silky gleam of the petals, but here’s an attempt.

They are amazing when backlit.

The roses are blooming, too, and this little pink one seemed to want to be included.

It’s supposed to rain tonight.  It’d be nice to capture some flowers with rain jeweling their petals . . . it hasn’t happened much this year.
