Welcome to Day 7 of Poppy Week!
Today I thought i’d show some of the more unusual shots of poppies from my garden, before finishing with another beautiful variation of my red Papaver rhoeas poppies. And since i’ve barely touched the surface of my photo collection from this year i’m going to extend my Poppy week by one more day tomorrow! 🙂

This is a somewhat fore-shortened shot of the larger of my dozen or so poppy patches. it contains around 50 individual plants each of which produce between 1 to 6 flowers. This one patch has produced both large and small poppies; poppies with a cross and poppies without any cross; plain red and red with a white fringe; the reverse of those – red poppies with white in the centre and with golden stamen; half red/half white poppies; white/purple and white/orange poppies; pure white poppies; poppies with just 4 petals and poppies with over 2 dozen petals (I’m showing some multi-petalled poppies tomorrow! 🙂
All photos are the actual shading with the only editing done being close cropping for sharper definition.
More variations in Day 8 tomorrow. 🙂
