Day 157 - Poppy, before and after

Poppies are one of my favourite flowers. We have some in our garden and they're beginning to bloom. I ventured out into the rain, umbrella in hand of course, and snapped a few shots. I decided to post 2 of them. The first shows the poppy about to 'pop' out and the second is one that's just finished opening. I like the effect of the raindrops on the flowers. I'm hoping to plant some more this summer, white and red.

Both are great macro shots! Curious- I always think of poppies in red or orange. I love this pink variety too!

Great before and after. I too love poppies - saw some this colour on the weekend. The raindrops do add to the photo. Lovely.
