365 Project #101 It's A Poppy!
I went to Grenwelge Park on Thursday when Don and I were in Llano. He spotted this little flash of color in a ditch and I went down to investigate. From a distance it looked like a plastic flower someone had stuck in the ground, but no, it was real and came from a little nondescript-looking gray-green plant with pods like poppies. No way! Yeah, way. It's a Papaver somniferum and here's a listing for it. Looks like there are some plants around it that are the same thing. It's down in an inaccessible place where it didn't get mowed short. What a treasure!
