Today's flowers

For today's flowers I have this poppy .I made this picture last spring when we were on holidays in Spain. Poppies are such happy flowers, at least they make me happy when I see them.

Hello Riet.
I would imagine that Spain is a beautiful country. Maybe someday I'll go there.
The poppy flower is the most brillant color of what I'm calling orange. Lovely.
