I was inspired to upload this one after seeing RonnieAG's amazing interpretation of a red poppy heart, which you can see here.
I love the whorl of stamens, the dark centre markings, and the crown, which always reminds me of a fondant cream sweet.
Many thanks for your votes and comments, and continued support.
Pamela.

Yes,I remember Ronnies upload and I did compare it with a Jelly Tot sweetie Pamela. !!
Good shot here and have to say I prefer this one to Ronnies.
After all,I would prefer a fondant cream sweet to one of these piddling little Jelly Tots !!
