Today we had some rain again. I had actually thought we were done with the rain and wasn't happy with that at all. We still need rain... So today we got some. After the rain stopped I went outside to take some pictures of my poppies with raindrops on them. What I like about this kind of overcast weather is that the colors really pop.
Many of you know how much I love poppies. I have a lot of favorite flowers, but poppies are definitely at the very top - probably my most favorite of them all. They are delicate yet tough. They are mostly ignored by deer, and their seedpods are very decorative. They reseed readily and actually can get a little overboard if you don't keep an eye on them.
This one is my favorite of today's pictures:
A couple hours after I had taken these photos, it started to pour down heavily, and with that all the poppy glory went as well. They were no match to the heavy rain. I got these pictures just at the right moment. Thankfully there are so more poppies to come.
