TODAY'S FLOWERS & I Heart Macro - Iceland Poppies


A little while ago
I put in a patch of poppies . . .


after enjoying their winter jewelled coats,


they grew tall 
and unfolded their silken petals


winter winds quickly stripped them bare
to show off their golden hearts


they are so pretty from every angle


and provide sustenance to bees and butterflies
when not much else is around.
