Poppy At Night ...

Just a little bit of fun created by me in the 'processing room' over the festive period.

Hope everyone is staying safe and looking forward to what will hopefully be a much brighter and happier New Year!

Please view on black for best effect.

Papaver somniferum, also often referred to as the ‘Opium Poppy’ is an upright annual boasting large, fully double flowers. Blooming for weeks in summer, the flowers sit on top of stout stems clad with silvery leaves. They are followed by decorative seed pods that can be used in dried flower arrangements, or left in the garden for the visual interest they bring.

This particular plant self-seeded itself into our garden from who knows where, but it was a welcome visitor nonetheless, we just hope that its offspring might appear in the spring.

SOOC original to be found in the Notes, for those who like to see where it all began, that's assuming I can remember how to do it!

What a beautiful flower! Sometimes these "volunteers" can become the highlight of the garden!

Wishing you the best for 2022. It's looks like another uphill one from here, but hopefully it'll mend itself along the way :)
