Did you know that according to classical mythology (although I do not know if it is Greek or Roman) the bright scarlet color of the poppy signifies a promise of resurrection after death?
Poppies fascinate me. In every state that the flower is in-from the fuzzy bud that reminds me of Audrey-the alien plant in "Little Shop of Horrors", to it's unfurling flower and then the transformation to the remarkable seedhead. I can gaze at them endlessly in all of these states. And I must admit, I did get my fill at Albuquerque's Bio Park yesterday-as everything was in a state of glorious bloom!
