Iceland Poppy Blooming in Kentlands

Those of us that live in the Kentlands community in Gaithersburg, Maryland are enjoying the early spring flowers.  Iceland Poppies are large blooms and appear in several colors. 

Be sure to have your camera in hand to capture the changing colors of the season when you are walking through your community.

Have a great day,

Poppies are blossoms that remind me of my childhood.  There was always quite a number of them blooming in mom's summer garden.  I remember one variety that I hadn't seen in decades.  It was a variety of Asian Poppy with very large vivid blooms.  A couple of years ago I planted a wildflower mix in my back yard, and several of those came up, and enchanted me.

Thanks so much for your comments.  Dolores and I were out of town today.  We visited Winterthur in Wilmington, Delaware and Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.  We are fortunate to live close enough to make a day trip to these wonderful travel destinations.

Good morning to all.  Google the name Iceland Poppy for multiple images of this beautiful flower.  Iceland Poppies are much larger than the common poppies that many of us see in our neighborhoods.  I photographed some Iceland Poppies at Longwood Gardens on Friday.

Have a wonderful weekend.
