Chiffon Petals and Numb Lips

Is there anything more astonishingly glorious than a poppy? A most miraculous flower. For all it's intoxicating qualities, associations with internal sleep and remembrance...I find it one of the happiest flowers of all. But then maybe that's the point. After blowing them open you will find your lips go numb. Enjoy the view.
