Dear Louise, Very interesting...It amazes me how such a beautiful flower comes from something that looks very strange and not appealing. I am not good with flowers, but is this a Poppy? Those I do love..I never had a green thumb, or any color thumb for flowers, gardening etc. I love them and enjoy looking at how lovely they are, but just never had any talent with flowers. I do really well with the silk ones, especially those I can't kill. Just have to dust them. I do give you and anyone who has that green thumb credit! I know with this winter everyone is looking forward to Spring. So thank you for giving us a little taste of what is to come..Love how you took the photo of the time laps from opening to blooming..Blessings, Dottie :).
Yes Dottie, it is an Oriental Poppy as opposed to a California Poppy. Both are lovely flowers. Now you see, I do horribly with silk flowers. I detest dusting, lol...So glad you enjoyed your visit:)
Oh how much I long for spring too! Hopefully in a month or so we will see it here!
Soon, Katerina, soon:)
Thank you Joyce:)
Its always a pleasure reading your post..I feel so fresh looking at these flowers..
U'm deleted you enjoyed you visit, Gloria...Drop by anytime:)
Tell me about it! Here has been raining for months now. The soil is soaked. Just lots of rain here so far but not too cold... still some sunshine would be soooo good! XX
Sending sunshine your way, Alida. It may be freezing out but we have been very fortunate to have the beautiful Sun!
Beautiful image sequence!
Awe, gee, Mae, thank you for noticing:)
I actually prefer cool weather to warm, but it's been cold and snowy enough this year that I'm starting to look for spring. Lovely photos -- thanks.
I enjoy all the seasons we have here in PA, John but this year, Winter feels especially long...
Hi Louise , just gorgeous , just looking at this wonderful post , it needs no words .What they say ... a picture is worth a thousand words and my dear you said it all , thanks for sharing . :)
Awe gee, thank you Nee...It was certainly a fun post although, I was worried about get the sequence right. I took these this past Summer which right now sounds like long ago:)
Lovely. Almost painfully so, at the moment!
