A Beautiful Mess

Yesterday, I was quite excited to see that one of the rare poppies I have been growing for the last few months was about to bloom. The outer cover had just fallen off and the new crepe-like petals were beginning to open. I have been dying to try these fantastic poppies in one of my arrangements. My heart sank this morning when I saw every petal lying on the ground. The pod had developed too much before the flower ever opened. So this is the beautiful mess that is left.
