Poppy in the Morning

This is this first flower from this papaver, poetically (and aptly) named Dawn Chorus.

Dawn Chorus 1

Usually I wake up early, to find one or more of the kids waiting for breakfast. Soon, the family circus is breaking all around me. I slink off, still in my pajamas, and wander into the garden looking for something to photograph.

What joy to find this poppy covered with dew waiting for me like a shy young woman. (Well, I guess I’m allowed a flight of fancy, or two!). The chaos indoors fades into the background of my serenity, and Phyllis brings me out a cup of coffee. Camera on tripod, pjs wet with the dew, I keep photographing.

All too soon, it is time to drive my boys to school.
