Happy floral Friday! Last year my husband and I made a special trip to see Longwood Gardens' rare Himalayan blue poppies.

They were spectacular and I loved them wet or dry.

Here are some of the rare Himalayan blue poppies planted near a pretty pot of orchids and among anthurium blooms.

The blue poppies are a floral delight and I hope they make you smile. I also hope to be able to see them again this year (I haven't yet seen an annoucement as to when to expect this but think last year it was in March). 

Thank you for visiting! May God bless you!
