wild poppies



























I have been photographing our ever expanding poppy patch in our backyard for the past few years and this is the first time I have noticed this stage in the poppy's cycle. am I weird, or is this amazing?
and, would you believe I actually posted poppies for the letter P exactly one year ago plus one day  for this very meme? you can see them here if you'd like.
this post is a part of abc wednesday and today's letter is P. please visit the abc wednesday meme page to join in the fun.

That is so great! Eyes wide open with camera in hand.

This center piece looks like it's made of sugared candy. Amazing.

Terrific detail and it seems so unusual to have the petals drop this way. Thanks for sharing.

Huh! I've never seen a poppy in this stage either, but it is equally beautiful, perhaps even more so.

Oh, Lily! How pretty. I love poppies. They remind me of my mom, who passed away at the young age of 50. She had poppies all the way around her house and they were her favorites! ~karen
