Oriental Poppy Back

Oriental Poppy Back

The back of an Oriental poppy is equally as beautiful as its front side. Here’s an interesting fact about poppies ~ they have been found in Egyptian tombs, and it is believed that they were grown as far back as 5000 BC in Mesopotamia.

    I am going to have to start paying more attention to the backs of flowers. This is beautiful. The dark background is also great. It really makes the colors “pop”.

      I discovered what a black background can do when I placed a bouquet of flowers down on a black desk while I was looking for a vase. When I went to pick up the flowers, I saw how beautiful they looked against the black…and ever since then, well, the black background has become a favorite for me. All of my photos are accidents really…just looking and seeing, and then not being able to resist trying to capture such beauty. I have flowers in the house or in the garden all the time, and always at least one right next to me on my work space. As a flower unfolds, every stage is a mystery and a beautiful sight…at least to me. 🙂
