Poppies and Peonies - my favourites, but I am always amazed how large and blowsey the flowers are after being packed into such tight buds. I also love it when the little green cap sticks to the poppy for a bit.June truly is busting out all over!
I was so very pleased with that shot. I love poppies, too, but don't always have luck. One year 17 blossoms, another year none. We moved the plant and I have 5 buds, so am hopeful. That's a great way to describe them! Thanks for coming by, Peg.
You take the most beautiful photos!
Nan, my poppies have bloomed and all the petals fallen already. They were the same color as yours. I keep thinking I want some in other colors, but these are a happy, cheerful burst of orange in the garden. Very nice photo!
Thanks, Books Please and Aisling! I seem to be able to get good "macro" shots, but there are some I take over and over and can't get one good picture. For example, my hill of lupines. Try as I may, it looks like a blur. But I'll keep at it. :<) My poppies are late because we moved them from a sunny, warm spot to a more exposed, shadier place. I'm just hoping the five buds all open. There will surely be photos if they do!
Marvelous shot, Miss Nan!
Thanks, Miss Les. :<)
