And the winner is . . .

These pretty poppies were growing
side by side at the botanic garden, looking
like so many contestants in a beauty pageant.

[Linking back to Monday Mellow Yellows,
Mandarin Orange Monday,
Mosaic Monday, and Ruby Tuesday.]


  1. I love poppies. And yours are pageant winners.

    I can imagine what they might look like in a bathing suit competition.

  2. How lucky am I ~ it's been way too long since I said Hello and I happened to score Tall Gary at the same time. Hello and hello!

    Those poppies are gorgeous, dear Alexa. x0

  3. And like contestants, it's hard to pick a winner.

  4. Love poppies -- such a happy flower!

  5. oh sooo lovely; have a nice Monday

    much love...

  6. How pretty. I've never seen a white fringed poppy before.

  7. They all seem to have personalities....great observation♪

  8. Wow so pretty! Like dancers swirling their skirts!

  9. Poppies are always so cheerful. Lovely shots Maria’s Space

  10. You got some amazing photographs of those so fragile poppies. I took some snaps recently but they are so hard to capture. Especially given there was a slight whisper of a breeze moving those bending stems causing the whole flower to tremble.
