Peach Parfait

Peach Parfait... layers of fluffy peach petals glistening in strong sunlight, showing off the silky delicacy of this oriental bloom.
Last summer while on a photo shoot down in the Riverdale  Community here in Edmonton, I came upon a bed of fabulous peach toned poppies.  It was a hot day, and these oriental beauties were languishing in the heat, trying their best to hold up their heavy heads.  Many of them were sprawled across a bit of sidewalk next to the flower bed, waiting for the coolness of the evening to bring them some relief from the intense summer sun.  They were gorgeous!
