p is for poppies


please click on photo to see the sunshine on these poppies


with all the rain we've had I decided to pull something bright and colorful from the archives. these poppies grow in my garden and every year I look forward to their bloom. I imagine when the sun finally does make an appearance this is what I'll see. this post is part of abc wednesday so if you'd like to see more representations of the letter P, please go here, thanks to mrs. nesbitt.

Always adored poppies, such delicate paper thin petals, but a beautiful red.

Love these poppies. My folks always had Icelandic poppies growing in our garden when I was growing up. Thanks for the nostalgia.

So bright and cheerful! Poppies are lovely flowers, and I love the shape of their seed heads.

On behalf of the Team, thanks for participating.
