How creativity seems to colour every day of my life

Red Poppy...

Tuesday 28th June 2011

I had intended to have this as my Macro Monday post for yesterday.  But I was late and didn't get it posted in time.  So I thought I would put it on today.  I love these gorgeous poppies.

To be honest, I don't know the variety.

They have grown in Steffi's garden in Kent since she and Paul bought the house about 16 years ago.

I loved the richness of the plum and aubergine colours in the centre with the little bit of sage green...

Such a striking plant and every bit as beautiful when the petals fall and the poppy seed heads mature.


I too love poppies. You've captured some wonderful details of the flower's center.
