    I always learn something new from you! (I had to look up papaver. 😛 ) And I do see the snoozing mouse in the picture! Maybe the poppy is the plant version of the “ugly duckling” transforming into a beautiful swan? Hugs and love, my friend.

      Ah, you read my mind! They are strange looking buds though, and it’s always a lovely surprise when they open. I love these giant poppies. xx

    Rachael, Like Miranda, ‘had to look this up :). So cool–did not know the word nor that particular magical transformation-so inspiring! xo

      I like the idea that something ordinary like a bud opening can be thought of as magical. It reminds me that maybe its all just a question of perception…and that’s so exciting! xx
