Browsed through some old images on the EHD this week and discovered this one of a Poppy. Thought it reminded me of a rather seductive lady wearing a feather boa and that's where the title came from - I know, getting madder by the minute! One definition of "Femme Fatale" is, dangerously seductive, which of course is a sad truth lying behind the beauty of Poppies too.

Many many thanks to Mike ( hasslebladuk) for his UA given to "Shadow Play" and to Sanjeev (1881) for his UA to "Indoors and Out" both of which were a wonderful surprise and greatly appreciated.

I love the centers of poppies - they differ greatly between the different species. Some remind me of sugar coated candies Smile I hope I have a nice crop of these in spring, but so far the few that have emerged are lacking in the usual numbers. We've just had too little rain.
