Papaver commutatum 'Ladybird'


Papaver commutatum 'Ladybird'

Don't get too excited . . . this was taken last year and I just wanted to cheer myself up with a sunny shot. This plant has seeded itself and is doing well, but looks a bit soggy at the moment.

Just checked the exif details Sticki and it was taken at 10 past 3 in the afternoon, so I guess I was just lucky with the position of the sun in that border. The background being in shadow helps too.
