Yes, I know I promised the end of all the poppy pictures. But you just had to see the supernatural one that flowered this week. Wow.
The one below is growing right next door to the one shown above - it looks like it has had a nervous breakdown on top of a really bad hair day.
Now that I have broken my promise, here are two more poppies at the other end of the spectrum. No nervous breakdowns here - just simple, cool elegance.
