The Beauty of Nature

After I haven't taken any pictures for a while I took quite a few last week, and I had some difficulties to decide which one would be the photo of the week. I finally went for this beautiful poppy that I found in the wildflower garden of my favorite bakery in Freestone.


Nature is the best painter, isn't she?

I'm linking this to Mandarin Orange Monday.

so graceful! It feel like a still from a movie. Any second that bud is going to stretch upwards.

Carola it really is a beautiful image. I love the colour - the contrast of texture and composition. Thank you for sharing it on Mandarin Orange Monday :) And my apologies for being so late getting back to you.
