New Pink Baby Poppy

New Pink Baby Poppy

It’s a new pink Iceland Poppy, just beginning to open up and un-crinkle. And whoever would have believed, unless they saw it for themselves, that something so delicate and fragile could come from a stem just like the one in this photo…so spiny in appearance. Yes, it’s true, delicate beauties awakening from surprising beginnings. 🙂

Has anyone ever seen the movie “Little Shop of Horrors”?

Yes, Little Shop of Horrors, that’s what I think of when I see these flower pods, which are pretty fuzzy, a whole lot of hairy, a little bit creepy ~ but hold the gift of an incredibly beautiful flower, my all time #1 favorite flower. You thought it was a rose, didn’t you? Nope, it’s the Iceland Poppy, and it’s that time again, so prepare yourselves for a little flurry of amazing poppy photos. 🙂
