#022 Poppy (ケシ Keshi)

We can see many poppy in our garden here and here.

It's going against the law to grow a certain type of poppy in Japan.
This is not illegal.

But we don't grow them.

They are exactly weed in our garden.

A flower's life is short!

This picture was taken by me three days ago.

The flower petal carpet was taken this morning.

There is the carpet under the cherry.

What short the flower's life is!

But we are able to enjoy the flower two times in the sky and on the earth.

Thanks, great nature!
