The poppies are just now bursting open in my gardens.
I can't resist taking a close look inside.
How I love the light shining through the petals creating
yellow, orange, pink, and red,
and isn't the center a glorious creation?
"As for marigolds, poppies, hollyhocks, and valorous sunflowers, we shall never have a garden without them, both for their own sake, and for the sake of old-fashioned folks, who used to love them."
~Henry Ward Beecher
