Rustic colours

By ColleenA
Good morning from Winchester...looks like another scorching day ahead...
A big thank you for all your votes and comments on my Ashes cricket images and to Kate and Jukka for their UA's which was a lovely surprise.
Today I have decided to upload a flower image taken at Wollaton Hall a few days ago. I do not know what it is called. Also you will all be pleased to note its a single upload today. I do appreciate your patience with my multi uploads in the last 10 day, but wanted to share the wonderful things I have seen.

Beautiful image Colleen - amazing DoF. It looks like an Icelandic poppy (papaver nudicaule) to me.
They grow like weeds up here - seeds spreading in the wind and finding their way into edges of garden paths etc.!

A beautiful image, Colleen, and such pleasing colours. I belive this is a rock rose, or helianthemum. Carol
