Bright poppies

In the Botanic Garden in Oxford, a collection of red poppies with black dots reminded me of ladybirds. Seen from above, my husband associated them with ballerinas in a tutu.

One thing is for certain: this bumblebee liked them as well.

Lots of buds, so more poppies to come…

Papaver-8

Would the orange poppies have anything to do with the Dutch monarchy?
