I find this photo very appealing because it captured a lot of what I notice about this little patch of what makes this one of my favorite places in the garden. The Poppies are noticeably going through their many different stages complete with their various colors and textures. These are exciting flowers to have in ones garden. They reseed themselves so each year I get a few more as they spread across the ground. During their final stage where their seed pod turns from a bright feathery green to a light almost brittle brown the seeds are released to grow new plants that come back later in the summer. In between it looks as if everything has completely died out only many more are actually propagating almost entirely unnoticed.
When I first inherited this garden I tried to cut these poppies to display inside but they barely lasted half an hour in a glass of water. The cool thing about these flowers is that you have to go outside and visit them if you want to enjoy their beauty.
