 Poppy – June 2009

I love their cheerful scarlet faces.  I love the way the delicate flowerheads droop when a heavy honeybee alights on them looking for pollen.  I love their elegant, swan-necked buds. I love their crinkly crepe paper-textured petals that straighten out as soon as they burst free of the bud.  And I love that they seed themselves and provide splashes of colour where almost nothing else wants to grow.

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister – all previously featured  photographs can be viewed on the Saturday Snapshots compendium page.  All photos featured in Saturday Snapshots are available to buy as high-quality greeting cards or prints in my RedBubble store. They make gifts, for friends or for yourself!
