March 15

This California Poppy was breaking through its cover and just about to open earlier this morning.  The bud is shaped like a traffic cone, and the outer casing splits off when it's ready to flower.  So the green at the top of the photo is the casing coming loose. And the stem, if I had photographed it, would have shown under the bottom right corner of the photo.  I think this orientation makes the flower look like a couture gown.  I'm a huge fan of Project Runway, and the first part of the finale is tonight.  This "dress" reminds me of an Austin Scarlett creation.
