The Flower

Greetings Everyone! 

Hopefully you read my post yesterday and saw this very cool flower that has started to bloom from the bottom. I was so anxious to see what kind of flower it truly is. 
I took this photo yesterday at around 7AM.
I had a doc. appt. at 9:30AM, it was very short and was home by 10:AM. I pulled the car into the back yard and as I walked around I saw that this flower had bloomed in full force. I was so excited! I ran into the house to get my camera.
Can you believe this is a poppy?
 
I had to stand in front of it to block the sun


Here it is at 4:30PM. If you click on the photos you can see the pink at the bottom. 
I love this flower.
Also, for those who commented about the flowers on my tomato plants this early, is because I have them in the greenhouse. Last year, I had tomatoes outside and they did not fare well in my Oregon coast weather.
Last Thursday we drove to Salem, OR. While I waited in the car for Mr. M. to get his doc. appt. I drew this person. Just someone out of my brain. 
some strange little dude for sure. LOL
 
Have a great day today.

  7. Nicole,

    Usually, we see poppies planted in the medium along the Interstates around here. It's really breath-taking to see such cheery little flower heads greeting us in our travels. It's cool how stray flowers wind up in our yards, isn't it? Nice sketch of the dude - very realistic.

  13. Hi Nicole, I was just about to say it looks like a poppy then I scrolled down.. My favourite flower of all such a shame they do not last too long. I have a random poppy growing amongst my garlic, not sure where it has come must have been carried in by the wind, I hope it comes in to flower. That's a great sketch love that side way glance.
    Hugs Tracey xx
