Harlow Blue

By cabbie  
Once again, many thanks for all your votes and comments. Big thanks to Chinga for the UA. This is a new variety of Poppy, one of 23 plants at Harlow Carr RHS Gardens in Harrogate. I used the black background to show the blue colour off at its best, although I thought long and hard about a textured background. I hope some of you like it.

The orange stamens contrast so well on this electric blue, Bob. The light direction gives some lovely shadows and details as well.
