Poppies reign in my garden!

I've taken dozens of photos like these below, of these wonderful flowers, so delicate, so proliferous, cadmium red! 
I can't wait to put brush to canvas to try them out. 
Since my class at Southampton has been cancelled (not enough registrations)
I will have more time to paint the glorious sights of spring around my house. 
(At least when I take a break from digging and planting and weeding.)

I love the way the stems take such odd shapes. And I love the fuzzy flower pods. 

The honeybees really love them too. See the one below?
He just might make it into a painting.
