Poppies


 I simply had to buy poppies, wait for them to open slowly, coming out
of their rather unappealing "shells" and watch in amazement
at the beauty and delicacy of each flower.    
They remind me in part of soft crinkly paper, in in others others of a
creased taffetta or even silk (fabric).  
These are some of the images captured - enjoy!
