We had some pretty huge storms last week. The day after one of them, I took a walk and found some poor raindrop-bruised poppies and some bees buzzing around them. Poppy petals are pretty paper-thin normally, but these look particularly fragile.
This is the big monster that came through.

Fuzzy poppy stalks. Good defense against ants, I presume. Not snails, though.

I think I first typed "poopy" just about every time I tried to type "poppy" in this post.
