Poppies!


Every time I hear the word "poppies" spoken all by itself, I can't help but think of The Wizard of Oz.

I don't think these particular poppies have any sinister qualities to them.  I found these in a garden in Scottsdale.  They were growing right next to a royal blue ceramic vase so I framed this orange poppy with the blue background.
















The poppies themselves, were very bright and eye catching.  Poppies are a very cheerful flower.  They look very delicate and almost like they were made of tissue paper.

One of my favourite flowers, I planted some seeds last year but it was too late so hoping they come up this year.

We saw some of these over where the BRD lives in Prescott recently but a few days later they were no longer blooming. Apparently they have short lifespans.

They will always be my favorites as wild flowers.

One of my favorite flowers. Dave and I also often find ourselves saying "Poppies!" in the Wicked Witch's voice...
