The Giant Poppy

Postcard from a Giant Poppy
Greetings from a Giant Poppy.

The latest addition to Dad’s garden is a Giant Poppy. He called me over when he had put it in the ground, to admire it with him. And I have to agree with him, it is magnificent and a real garden beauty. I think it just screams of natural magic and poetry…

Here are a few of the photos I took:

Dear Giant Poppy

Dear Poppy, I like your eagerness to bloom…

Giant Poppy
…your silk soft petals…

…and your velvet middle that reminds me of a sea anemone.

I like the amazement nature’s wonders present me with. Oh bliss! Thank you for the simple pleasure you present, every day.

  1. How funny-I was *just* looking at the exact same colour and size of poppy yesterday at the Farmer’s Market. I am going to buy myself a pot of them next week if the vendor still has them.

  2. Fantastic flower and fantastic photos!

    I love those poppies! I have several in my garden and they are gorgeous!

    Note to self – must plant more and must use them for art inspiration!

    Mesmerizing! Up close they look so alien, like something from the movie Avatar.

    Mmmmm. I love poppies! There’s something so lush and delicate about them. Plus their seed heads are so fun to craft with!

    Thanks for popping in girls, and commenting! ;-)

    Melissa, you craft with the pods? What do you do? Tell me! :-)

    I use them dried, in my shrines, or in dried flower arrangements. I’ve often though it would be fun to stamp with the tops, they have such a neat circular shape. This year I grew the little icelandic poppies, they’re beautiful, but don’t have the big seed heads like the oriental ones. I’m hoping to get an oriental poppy next year.
