Flower of the Day – October 12, 2017 -Awesome Poppy Variations

It’s almost like someone is playing games with my Poppy Patch! 🙂

These three photos were all taken in the same small patch of poppies i have growing in my garden. The vast majority of flowers are the standard brilliant red colour, some with a black cross in the centre, some without.

But then every couple of days a ‘new’ example raises it’s pretty head on a thin spindly stalk covered with fine sharp hairs.

Sometimes it almost looks like God is running out of red paint! 😉
