bursting open

I looked out this morning to see our first poppies had burst open, an ornamental and a wild variety. It seemed a perfect opportunity to practice using the new camera, we didn't have long I had a train to catch, but managed a couple of shots. Aren't they glorious flowers? The colours, the frills and those eyelashes! I love them and just wish they lasted longer, instead they get thrashed about by the torrential showers of rain we keep having - poor things.
