Poppies from space



Maybe it's just that I watched the new Star Trek movie on TV last night, but does this or does this not look like a life form from outer space? It's actually just a white oriental poppy. Here's a more normal view.


Come to think of it, this iris blooming by the pond looks a little otherworldly, too.

HELLO!! I've not left a comment on your blog lately, but I have been reading your posts--Sorry about the rain and all it has brought with it!! I hope the sun shines pretty soon--We have plenty here, and enough to share, so I'll send some in your direction!
But you are so right about the flowers--That's a great shot into another world and one to think about too!! Hope you and Kim are having a good week!! :-)

That poppy is beautiful. I really like your flower pictures.

Speaking of pictures, wasn't Star Trek fun?

I don't believe I've ever seen a white poppy! Very pretty....

I'll send you some hot, dry weather if you shoot some of your rain over here!

Have a wonderful weekend, ladies!

Beautiful, and yes, sometimes unearthly... funny. I am here for a little visit, and to thank you for coming by Chickenblog. I hope you will come by again.
I am going to fix a cuppa tea and stroll through your Farm for a bit.
