Unfortunately, today nor any of the last few days was the day the wind stood still. But the wind did make for some breathtaking poppy (Papaver Orientale) photos.
The poppy above is from my favorite plant. The blooms can be the size of saucers. The plant can be leggy with a tendency to fall over, but the lack of moisture this year made for a perfect size plant.
Sometimes, maintaining the backyard feels like too much work. I try to divide the yard into smaller workable sections. But other days I do a happy dance because of blooms like the ones above.
I've never had so many blooms at the same time before on one plant. Hurray for late spring!
