Poppy Triptych

I’m pleased to present this triptych of poppy photos: white, red, and yellow. These flowers are all on one poppy plant in Julian’s garden. Here’s red:

This is an Icelandic Poppy, “wonderland,” Papaver nudicaule. It has been specially created to produce flowers of multiple colors off one plant. Here’s yellow:

It would certainly be possible to take the Frankenstein approach to this kind of thing: if humble poppies are genetically engineered to produce many colors in one plant, what happens when the genetic designers get human beings in their clutches? But I’ll leave such profound topics to others, and merely express myself delighted in the rainbow variety of Papaver nudicaule.

I think these three poppy images will make a great triptych when I print them up (about 20X24′ inches each print). If anyone is interested in acquiring a set of these prints, please contact me.

On another note, this is post number 400 on Photoblog 2.0.
