Orange Poppy


Today we should be leaving Fort Lauderdale, Florida on the Coral Princess for a 10 day cruise to the Panama Canal. This is one of the 3 places Jimmy and have wanted to visit since we met. We will celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary while we are on this cruise. The other 2 places we are still waiting to visit are Alaska and the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

What a beautiful orange poppy. It helps me forget some of the snow outside the window.

This is one beautiful flower - there are small clumps of these that come up every year on our country roads...where houses used to be and are now gone...I love them!

Allison said...

Beautiful! I can't until spring time when all of the flowers start blooming! Have fun on your cruise and I hope you get to visit Alaska sometime because it's one of the most beautiful places you will ever go!
