Pretty Poppies Popping

I don’t know the exact variety of these oriental poppies, but they’re marvelous. These are part of a cutting garden grown by Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden staff and volunteers.  The items in this garden are specifically grown to be dried and used in arrangements displayed during GardenFest. The texture of the bloom is amazing, sort of like luminescent tissue paper. The color in these photos has been minimally enhanced.
