This gorgeous poppy bloom first saw the light of day yesterday. The photos above were taken at 7:30 as the sunlight was just beginning to beam it's soft rays onto the brand new petals.
An hour later the fresh flower warms in the gentle morning light.
Another hour sees it's beauty spread wide.
Early this morning, our "new" poppy is bowed down trying to shelter from last night's rain, still beautiful in it's own way.
