  • Thank you, Karen. :o) I had quite a lot of poppies in my garden last year as they like to re-seed themselves.

    Gorgeous, delicate, love the gentle curve of the stem! The texturing gives this a dreamy look.

  • Thanks, Celeste. :o) This image had just the right components to lend itself to this treatment.
