Version 2
Prickly poppies, Yuma County, Arizona

Who’s the inventor that dreamed up this plant?
Its prickles and stems play host to the ant;
Honeybees forage for midmorning sweets
Deep in the blossoms where they find rich treats.

  1. Lots of plants you have to watch out for on the Arizona desert, but I didn’t know a poppy was one of them! (Cholla cacti were my nemesis). The flower is pretty though…delicate beauty with a prickly stem.

  2. Sorry I forgot to change to my correct blog name. My WordPress is an unused one…

  4. Magnificent and creative floral shot!
