glorious poppies

poppymedlypost1833My poppies have started blooming again. They are a big flower about 4/5 inches across and such a concentrated color of orange. I looked down my front sidewalk and thought someone had stuck a orange sprinkler flag there – but no it was my first poppy! They even survived the hail we had last Tuesday, it was just buds then. I like the star that forms at the center of this mandala.
