Oriental Poppies!

More with Layers & Blending Modes

These magnificent beauties have the life span of a Butterfly. They are perennials in New England, and I can't tell you how many times I almost ran off the road gazing at them in the fields of Westport, Massachusetts.

Growing them for me was a challenge, they were not easy to transplant and seemed to like their original homes better. When they did bloom in my yard  I would visit the garden often, nurturing the delicate blooms and cherishing their short lived beauty. 
I used several layers with different blending modes on each. I feel like I'm making progress and very excited to have learned something new. 

Pin It!
