I have always loved poppies and FINALLY I have some blooming in my yard. Anna is trying her hand at capturing them on camera so I thought I would share a few of the wonders of God's creation. The reason I love poppies is they were everywhere in Italy when we went there seven years ago. We bought a few paintings which included poppies to have around the house and give away to remind us of beautiful Italy. Too bad poppies have seeds that cause some problems.....oh well, they are still incredible. We are hoping they will spread. There are some people not far from here that have a garden that always has something blooming throughout it and I can't figure out how they accomplish that. They have poppies of course.
The one on the left is of the poppy after the shell fell off. (Yes, they're backwards.)
