POPPY BUDS


The Icelandic Poppies were just about ready to bloom. I find their fuzzy stems and bud casings fascinating.

I was going to say this shot reminds me Little Shop of Horrors but Susan beat me to it.

JAM said...

That's great! I've never actually seen a growing poppy (that I remember, anyway).

What kind of weather do they "take."

I'm wondering if they would fry in the Florida sun and heat.

John Roberts said...

They look like little fuzzy street lamps!

Paula said...

I agree with Mandi - alien beings!! Thanks for sharing, Sue. Great photo!

Lavenderlady said...

Are they drooping because they are not ready to bud yet...or do they need water...or is this just the way they are? I don't remember seeing them like this and it is fascinating.

looks like they're ready!

Thought for a second I was seeing War of the Worlds. Really nice picture of a neat plant.

Moi said...

me too and love the way they burst into the beautiful colors....

I think they are either very very tired or they are bowing down before you.

Funny, fuzzy plants make me itch and when I looked at these my hand started itching lol.
