This one’s big, really big—bigger than my open hand, gosh darned down right huge!!! And I must admit, beauty that it is, the size alone is impressive.
This is the oriental poppy I’ve grown in my garden for years, right up front by the road where everyone can see it. And, trust me, passersby are duly impressed.
Overhead conversation between father and son.
Father: Look at that! (pointing to poppy)
Son (just a little guy): Oh! Wow! They’re BIG!
Father: Yes, they are.
See, guys enjoy pretty pink flowers too, as long as they are suitably BIG!
PS. 1 day left to the show, all the necessities are packed. Everything else is gravy.
