Along with the tulips (which I love) come the poppies. They don’t last very long, but their large blooms and vibrant colors are terrific subjects for flower photography. They can sometimes be a challenge to capture, however. Because the flowers are so large, light and delicate, the slightest wind will send them swaying – and we’ve had quite a few windy days here in Salt Lake City as of late.
That we find a crystal or a poppy beautiful means
that we are less alone,
that we are more deeply inserted into existence
than the course of a single life would
lead us to believe.

I love poppies. Arizona was covered with them in the spring. At least where we were living. So beautiful. That yellow poppy is stunning!
They are beautiful flowers. Thank you, Jill.
I love you for sharing the skills you have developed, and still are, in photography and it being the bases of your artistry in depicting the beautiful things God has blessed us with in His plan. And I thank Him for blessing me and your Mom with you.
