Last year, we (which is to say Madame) sowed a selection of wild flowers in a couple of raised beds in our garden. This year we have a colourful swathe of bright orange poppies, which have obviously self-seeded.
Monochrome, however, helps to bring out the detail of the heart of the flower.

I didn’t even notice the wasp until I’d downloaded this close-up image of a poppy onto my desk-top:

I wish I could have come up with something a bit more original than a flower for week 8 of the 52 Weeks Photo Challenge being run by The Girl That Dreams Awake. However, the truth of the matter is that pink isn’t really my colour.
However, that’s not to say this wasn’t a very nice pink poppy (complete with wasp) growing in Monet’s Garden at Giverny.
