I've not seen Spanish poppies before. Very pretty. I like the orange color. (The second pic does not show up on my computer. Wonder why?)

I love the color of this flower. The orange is so typical of fall. Gorgeous

Haven'tseen Spanish poppies before. The colours are vibrant and a real eye catcher.
(I had a wonderful time with the daughter. It's nice visiting.)

Great shots! I love how you separated the flowers from the background!

It's very pretty - looks like crepe paper.

But how do you know it's Spanish. Did it say "Hola, Senora" as you walked by? :-)

They are so frilly and happy! And I love the fall color! Happiness!

It's so nice you still have some to enjoy! I started seeing them as early as June in Vermont. But I doubt there are any left by now in New England.

I've seen the red ones (I love that famous scene in the Wizard of Oz where Dorothy and her pals become intoxicated and lay down in a huge poppy field! ;-)

Such a beauty, and I love the addition of the pod with the flower.

This is a beautiful color. I'm not familiar with Spanish Poppies. Do the blossoms have different colors?

A very pretty poppy picture. I really like how you have the one next to it without its petals. It's a lovely composition.
