I love oriental poppies. Mine didn't come up this year. I had them for over 10 years and they always came back in the spring but not this year so I'm glad to be able to enjoy your beautiful photograph.

You have so many beautiful flowers! Maybe we do, too, and I haven't noticed. Another wonderful photo!

I do love the color of these. I like how the purple center is your focus.
Beautiful shot!

What a beautiful sight that must have been... and you will be able to look at them now when ever you want... In winter I tend to change my computers desktop to summer views that I've taken...

So beautiful. Arguably my favourite flower. When I was small, I didn't listen to Mum and picked some. I learned my lesson well. They had wilted within 5 minutes...

Those are really gorgeous! Love the combination of orange and deep purple. Great composition!

This year the poppies here were gone too soon. I am surprised you still have them this time of the year.

I like poppies - used to make little dolls out of them as a kid - may be the most beautiful red in the world is the hot poppy red!
