Poppy Floral Painting, Orange on the Edge, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair

Orange on the Edge is a poppy I discovered while strolling (with camera in hand) through a Riverdale neighbourhood, here in Edmonton.  Amongst the profusion of poppies and Iris in the community garden was this particular poppy, a real show-stopper!  This was a first for me.  I have not seen many white poppies, which is probably why this variegated specimen with its tissue paper thin white petals edged with one of my favourite colours... orange, stood out from the other beauties in this garden.

Big, bold and beautiful... with orange on the edge.

Hi Kim: This is lovely -I haven't seen this particular poppy -very interesting! I am glad that I was able to meet you and have a chat at the Calyx show.
Take care
