Wonderful stuff, Lisl!
Lisl: Thank you, Master
Oh just lovely, Lisl!
Lisl: Thank you very much, Elizabeth. I can't resist a poppy!
Great detail, Elisabeth.
Lisl: Thank you, Frank
We had poppies in California, Lisl, during our 12 years there when our kids were young, but other than that, your fair country is where I most see them nowadays/years! How lovely.
Lisl: Strange you don't see many in the Netherlands, Ginnie. Hope they bring back happy memories of your children

Red satin sheets for nature's sex workers. Great shot - poppies are made for picture taking.
Lisl: Aren't they just, Louis, thank you. I have many images

Now that is very pretty. The "hairs" on the stem really sparkle. You would do well in a "flower" category photo contest smile
Lisl: That is very kind, Alan
Delightful Lisl. Lovely rich colours
Lisl: Thank you so much, Bill

Your series is wonderful- and I love red poppies the most. The looks so fragile, but are hardy flowers despite wind an weather.
Lisl: Thank you very much indeed, Philine

Sad that so delicate and beautiful a thing should be irrevocably coupled with the brutality and mayhem of war.
Lisl: But perhaps it brings some solace in that situation, Hugh
What a beautiful pop of colour. Poppies are so full of life.
Lisl: They are, and well loved everwhere
Maureen just loves Poppies, i sometimes think she'd like a garden full of them!
Lisl: Sow a few seeds and never pull up the plants until they have seeded again!!
that bee is going to get a good high from the potpie Lisl... good shot....petersmile
Lisl: Perhaps she knows what she is doing, Peter
Very good Lisl.
Lisl: Thank you, Chad
Wow, that is red!
Lisl: Can't get much redder
Beautiful. Little burst of sunshine.
Lisl: Delight of a summer's day

Lisl: Thank you, Astrid - a few months perhaps?
... and bees!
Lisl: Mais oui!
