A lovely flower...
Tom Wilson: It is indeed - but difficult to grow - and not a true poppy - a different species, Mecanopsis.

intriguing

Never saw this before! Very pretty and nice rendition.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Bonnie
Quite spectacular Tom. I like these.
Tom Wilson: They are lovely - but difficult to grow: these were in the Bot. Gardens, I've only managed to get one to bloom on one occasion!

I really like this, a wonderful colour combination
Tom Wilson: They are very lovely plants - I managed to grow a blue version one year, but had no luck since then.
Never seen a purple poppy before

A whacky design.
Tom Wilson: Not a true poppy - different species, Mecanopsis - difficult to grow in the south, they like a colder climate and I imagine that the warm spell will have killed them off in the Bot. Gdns.
That is a lovely flower.
Tom Wilson: Difficult to grow
I can see the similarities and the differences to the papaver. Cool.
Tom Wilson: Yes, one can see why it is popularly called a poppy.
What a beautiful colour, Tom. Would love to have a summer dress in that shade.
Tom Wilson: Lovely, isn't it?

i like the thin, papery feel of the petals as captured in your shot, Tom.
Tom Wilson: That describes them very well, Ayush.
