poppyI love poppies. I love the way they punctuate the world with vibrantly red, fragile petals enveloping their seed pods. And I adore the fact that they aren’t really flowers for vases, they thrive outdoors, slender stalks proudly presenting their scarlet cups, withstanding wind and weather, for a while, but once indoors they loose their strength and quickly wither away.
