The white poppy

Each year I look forward to the first white poppy  –  a Perry’s White.  –  in early June.  The flowering period is short  –  especially if  there  is rain  or strong winds  –   but there is so much to enjoy about this delicate and elegant flower, both in totality and through closer observation.

The White Poppy

I mentioned a few days ago that the pink and white poppies had fared better than the earlier flowering reds.  The ‘Perry White’, pictured below, is a beautiful flower and has been prolific this year.

When enlarged, the gentle undulations of the seemingly pure white individual petal collect and reflect other colours and shadows to create an abstract image of delicate, subtle tones.
