    o!…. how especially lovely!!!. it is so cool to see something I have never seen before … and it is gorgeous.

  • Oh, I’m happy you saw this for the first time then… do have a close look as poppies when they are finished… they all have some similar seed-boxes, but the variations are all gorgeous! :D Thanks for the kind comment, Isa!
