|6:30 am Wednesday, dewy gorgeousness.|
Almost tulip-like, I was delighted to capture this beautiful delicate poppy as it was opening. Poppy buds spring into bloom so quickly! All Monday and Tuesday the bud below was pointed skyward, waiting to "pop".
|7:30 am Tuesday.|
Notice the next bud on the left-hand side.
|6:25 am Wednesday, still very dewy before the sun reaches it.|

|7:40 am Wednesday, opening beautifully.|
|8:30 am Wednesday, still some dew drops.|
|10 am Wednesday, a saucer-shaped delicacy.|
|12:30 Wednesday, head held high. |
You can see the next bud, promising of more delights in a few days time.

Thursday the flower was almost as beautiful, remaining fully open all night and through the day. This morning, Friday, after some rain and wind it's looking a little bruised. Another day or two and it will drop its petals and concentrate on maturing it's seed pod......and the next bud! What an amazing flower the "humble" poppy is. It has given me much pleasure to watch these poppies grow and bloom.

Amazing! I love seeing the progression of growth...well done!
If you'd like to pick it up, I've got a little award for you at 'my place':
It's always feels a little ridiculous to choose a favourite photo from your posts - they are all always so very good. But I'm going to go the first one, really REALLY like that one.
I think poppies in every stage are so very beautiful! Thanks again for your lovely photos.

This flowers are so beautiful. I love the style how you show us the opening! Thanks for sharing this event with *Weekendflowers* :)
I highlighted your blog on my blog today.
Fall is creeping ever nearer in my neck of the world, so I am grateful to God, for finding your blog. It will be wonderful having a place to visit to see life, sunshine and color during my darker and colder days. It will be a good reminder of God's faithfulness.
I think I need to plant some poppies next year. =)
Holy wow! These pictures are gorgeous! Love these shots!

My only sadness is that poppies do not last longer...
Beautiful photos of the progression. You did well! :)
What an incredible series of photos. I've done this with a rose and know the patience it takes.
And I have no words for how gorgeous this poppy is.
Those are the best shots ever of those poppies. You did an awesome job. They are lovely. I really like the first one with the water drops.
now I want to find a flower bud and take a set of photos, before during and after blooming :)
Wow, that is beautiful! I love the chronology of it.
wow! that's absolutely amazing. and congratulations catching the whole blooming :)

That is a wonderful sequence, beautifully presented. Our poppies are long gone here, and I loved seeing yours. Happy Spring!
Wow, these photos are just amazing!! You captured this process so clearly and beautifully. Poppies really are a cheerful and lovely flower. Thanks so much for sharing and Happy Pink Saturday.
I like the music on your site to accompany the beauty; the birds' song is so appropriate! And my favorite shot is the one with the poppy and the next bud obviously above you...I am imagining your position as you took this shot!
Blessings blogland friend!
Once again, your study in blooms is breathtaking. Thank you. I have been addicted to the early morning light lately as well and have spent many mornings on my tummy in the garden trying to capture what you do so well.
Brilliant sweet girl...brilliant!
Amazing pictures! The colour of the poppy is very attractive too.
These are fantastic captures.
Gorgeous series of shots! Delicious color too!
Beautiful! You give me pieces of beautifulness and also pieces of Sunshine.
Your flowers are absolutely stunning, brilliant photos!
I love poppies and you captured the beauty with great delicacy. These pictures were a joy to view. Thank you!
Absolutely gorgeous photos!
I photographed my first poppies on our visit to the Roma Street Parklands last Friday! :)
Those are some incredible photos! You've inspired me to go out and find some flowers to shoot!
You are a persistent lady! The first one is my favorite, because it reminds on a princess' dress! Lovely and beautiful!
These unfolding ceremonies of your flowers are so special.
