I love your pics! The poppy is our state flower. When I was a little girl they grew wild everywhere. The hills were literally covered with them...then people began processing opium out of them (must have been the 60's) and they were exterminated...so sad.

Nice! Reminds me of pretty crepe paper.

Carletta said...

These are gorgeous shots!
You've really captured the delicate petals.
I love the first shot with that touch of blue in the vase.

My flower post is here: Carletta’s Captures.

I agree! Poppies are really gorgeous! The ones you have are the same colors the poppies in my neighbourhood have. I love the light in your photos, simply wonderful shots!

Have a great Sunday!

Its been awhile since I have seen any poppies around here. Those petals kinda remind me of colorful tissue paper. Very pretty.

Are those just sitting in your window sill? Beautiful orange colors! I missed the Poppy Reserve this year. The bright colors are just so pretty!

Yes, they are Maria. They even used here down under as a symbolic flower en memoriam for the Fallen Heroes.

They look so delicate, thin as a paper. Beautiufl indeed.

Arija said...

Maria they are so lovely, especially with the light shining through the petals and delineating evey vein.
