Yes, they are, but don't be green - most all I have photographed and posted here come up like weeds. I mean literally. They grow everywhere, with no encouragement, and despite DISCOURAGEMENT!. Poppies, calandulas, wall flowers - just go crazy. So I take their pictures!

I got my eye on a creamy poppy, and one with tons more yellow that I will post sometime soon...

BK, thanks for posting this lovely flower for us. I love your poster! Wonderful!

Fishboy, very nice! I like what your technique does to the background on the first, and the plastic wrapped one looks like an old-fashioned wax flower.

Bill C, wow...bordered in gold...awesome!

CJ and Bill both did nice fine outlines...the technique works very well with this simple flower...both very effective!

Amanda, a gorgeous usual.

Goldcoin,’ve outdone us all on brightness!

Michelle and Jill, both nice combinations. You’ve turned the humble poppy into something more...very imaginative!

I went with simplicity of form and intensity of color.
