flower of the week...poppies

i LOVE poppies!! they can sometimes be tricky to work with because when using them as cut flowers you need to sear the bottom of the stem over an open flame and place in warm water otherwise the flowers may not open or they could drop all of their petals. but once the poppies have opened they are breathtaking...the petals are like ruffled silk and are so delicate. you'll typically see the poppies in bright hues of orange and yellows as well as softer yellow and cream tones. this is one of my favorite shots of an orange poppy...

here they are used in an arrangement for a corporate event at the
time warner center

  1. Poppies are also one of my favorite flowers. I think because I am naturally drawn to their color palette.
