Red Poppy on Blue Sky

August 17th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

“The flower color of poppy species include: white, pink, yellow, orange, red, and blue; some have dark center markings. The species that have been cultivated for many years also include many other colors ranging from dark solid colors to soft pastel shades. The center of the flower has a whorl of stamens surrounded by a cup- or bowl-shaped collection of four to six petals. Prior to blooming, the petals are crumpled in bud, and as blooming finishes, the petals often lie flat before falling away.” Quoted from Poppy on Wikipedia.

    Cool picture Dave. Nice red poppy. I had not realized that there was a blue one in cultivation.
