Pink Poppy


Canyon Road is full of flowers right now and I was lucky to catch these Pink Poppies on my daily walk. These were the first of the season for me. I will have to visit another spot that has some amazing red ones when I get home. Have a peaceful Sunday.

I don't think I've ever seen pink poppies before. Pink just happens to be my favorite color. Hope you're having fun on your trip back to home town. I'm hoping to be there in a couple of weeks.

Those are beautiful! My family will be here on Monday- I shall take them walking on Canyon rd- one thing we haven't done yet when they've come to visit before. I hear they will get big winds in AZ if you are still there... but we are used to that, aren't we? Safe travels, Randy, & happy Sunday!

I have never seen poppys like these. In fact, I have never seen a poppy I didn't like.

Pink! I would love to see a whole field of pink poppies. I always think of poppies as red but this variety is stunning!

Amazing Randy. They look like they are made from paper. Do they bloom all summer and fall?
