Inner Beauty IV: Poppy Pink, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair

"Youthful beauty fades with time, but, with cultivation, inner beauty grows richer." (author unknown)



A flower has so many beautiful stages in its rather short life span.  Each stage is unique...  green shoots popping out of the ground in the spring... delicate stems growing towards the light... fragile petals unfurling... youthful blooms kissed by the sun, swaying in the summer breeze... mature flowers with a few blemishes and wrinkles holding their heads high, strong and wise from weathering the summer storms... golden seed pods swaying in the fall breeze, ready for a winters rest... waiting for the renewal of spring.
Beauty in a Poppy Center...

I am a big fan of poppies...they are breathtakingly beautiful and you have captured the essence of their centers and the papery thin krinkled petals. Lovely!
