Poppy Power!

We have a big fat poppy plant in our front yard. The flowers came into bloom two days ago, but they don't last long. They are about 7 inches across. These shots are pretty much as they came out of the camera, not touch-ups. The scarlet is so saturated, it almost repels the green at the edges!

I know the saying is to stop and smell the roses; these aren't roses, but they helped me stop a bit and relax.

And for that, I humbly thank you.
