The huge poppies are blooming. These unusual ones, the size of my hand, were discovered in a neighbor’s garden on a recent walk. Aren’t they something? The photo doesn’t really do justice to the red color, either. That tomato red, and the dark, dark center just do it for me. Flower thrills.

Visit Ruby Tuesday, Color Carnival, Today’s Flowers, Macro Friday, Macro Monday, SOOC Sunday (straight out of the camera), and Macro Flowers Saturday when you get a chance.

And you can always see the whole blog by clicking on the Sara’s Fave Photos banner above, if there is only one photo below. Check out a few more while you are here!
