A SHIRLEY POPPY

By cymru2019
" And God saw all that he had made and it was very good ". Genesis Chapter 1 verse 31. I will be taking a break from EPZ for about three weeks as we are having some internal works done to our small bungalow. Hopefully normal service will be resumed afterwards in taking pictures and doing further uploads.

This is a new name for me for a poppy, so had to look it up. (Building up my flower knowledge!!)
"The Shirley poppy was created from 1880 onwards by the Reverend William Wilks, vicar of the parish of Shirley in England." Now we all know!
Good capture with the raindrops on the petals.

Ian. I had to contact a couple who know what they are talking about to find out what this poppy was as well. Your investigations are the icing on the cake. David
