Macro Flowers Saturday #12-Red poppy

Welcome to Macro Flowers Saturday!

Macro Flowers Saturday badge
Macro Flowers Saturday is a photo meme for macro photos and close-ups of flowers, garden flowers, wildflowers, blossoms, flowers with insects and butterflies (no insects without flowers), flowers with raindrops and whatever beautiful plants, plant seeds or berries you have, in close-up.
Here is my entry for today:

Oriental poppy (Papaver orientale)or Royal Wedding blooms in May and June and they are truly spectacular flowers. Its scarlet, silky bright blooms absolutely steal the show in gardens, as they welcomes the beginning of summer.
It is a petty that these large, glowing, red-orange flowers don't last long and the velvety petals of poppies are so easily spoiled by rain.
