Is that the bud going into the blossom, or the blossom going to seed? In any case, I love that colour!

I love the little round disks that are left after the bloom has shed. Mine haven't started blooming yet but it shouldn't be long.

The buds are like cones, so unusual. I have seen red poppies here in New Zealand.
