I planted some new oriental poppies in my front yard this year.  They are so beautiful.  Because I paint so many of them in my work, I felt I need to have lots growing in my yard.  Or maybe that is just an excuse to buy pretty flowers.  This one just opened up today – a big, lone poppy on a small plant.  I quickly took a picture since someone walking by picked the solo poppy from my other plant.  Boo.  But I guess they are pretty irresistible.  Hoping this one stays awhile and for lots on both plants next Spring.
