This beautiful poppy appeared in my garden and I've no idea where it came from, but it is certainly very welcome. It has been a long time since I uploaded a flower, so it's something different, hope you like it.
It's name is Violetta Blush, a lilac opium poppy.
V2 is an alternative presentation.

Both these shots are absolutely top notch, Pamela: beautifully lit, and captured with exquisite detail. Can't decide which I prefer, both are so good.

The centre of the flower is the main interest for me, like twisted tissue paper. V2 conveys that better for me, V1 has a bit too much going on.

Nice to get a visitor like this beautifully photographed and presented.I bought a mixed bag of bulbs in the spring but when I got them home the labels etc were missing so I had a lovely surprise when a blue poppy appeared, waiting with baited breath to see what else grows in the pots.
