Serendipity Flower


Last week, when I mowed and weeded, I discovered an odd plant in the back. I didn't recognize it, so (as is my habit) I left it be. It looked like the above - funny, fuzzy plant.
Then, yesterday, I noticed something orange in the grass. I thought it was a toy accidentally thrown over the fence from the neighboring yard. When I got around to throwing it back over, I found that it wasn't a toy at all, but a beautiful poppy-like flower! Beautiful isn't it?

Beautiful! Mom says it IS some kind of poppy! You should look it up and let us know (Mom is going to try to look it up for you too, though)! ;) *HUG*

This is an Oriental Poppy - we have them in our yard, although I planted them. They are really stunning in full bloom!
