One Day Wonder

The seeds were planted the same day as the cornflowers seeds, yet their growth and appearance has been very different. Poppy - "Shirley Double Mixed" the label read.

Then as if from no where, a magnificent  flower sprung open. I stumbled upon it yesterday morning. The afternoon before the hairy, knobbly bud hadn't given any hints of being ready to open.

I quickly fetched my camera and snapped away before the bright morning sun had its way.

I returned late in the afternoon to check on my stunning little beauty but this is all that was left!

I was so pleased I noticed the flower yesterday morning, it would have been such a shame to have missed this one day wonder.

There are some more buds nestled amongst the furry leaves. Each day I'll keep watch, waiting for the next beautiful miracle.
