Excellent lighting, Dennis!:) Poppies are one of my favorite flowers. I love the delicate looking petals. This one has quite a defense system with those thorns.

Beautiful.:)

Beautiful flower Dennis, They are rare as Ivory and Gold, and I guess they need the
thorns to survive this big whole world...and a beautiful quote;
Some use their beauty to change their world and some use it to change others....:kiss: :D

thank you very much Donna.

these are more like the alien things from the movie of the same name. ruthlessly efficient... in the worst of drought nothing will feed on them... kind of zen pragmatists. beauty, danger and rejoicing in it.
