3 pictures in notes above! :)

After examining the plants that sprouted from the seeds I planted a couple of months ago, and I am thrilled to announce that there are no less than a DOZEN poppy plants of various sizes! This morning I stepped out of the house and all I could see was this new, gorgeous poppy that had opened up overnight!! It is entirely different than the red poppy that bloomed a few days ago, and it has two layers of petals which are edged in cream! The color is also unique! It's not pink and it's not red, but a bit of both, and extremely beautiful! This picture was taken soon after the sun crested the hill behind our house, lighting up the colors and making the petals a brilliant hot pink-red! WOW!!

Today and tomorrow are very special because they mark the halfway point of my 365 project!! I'm overjoyed that I've made it this far and also that I'm still excited for each day's new Picture of the Day! It's been a challenge to keep myself from overdoing it and burning out, but I'm doing fine with my self-imposed restrictions. It was a smart plan, but I still find myself very annoyed when I want to keep taking pictures but I force myself to stop. It's necessary but still annoying! :D

Dorothea Lange (May 26, 1895 – October 11, 1965) was an influential American documentary photographer and photojournalist, best known for her Depression-era work for the Farm Security Administration (FSA). Lange's photographs humanized the consequences of the Great Depression and influenced the development of documentary photography. Wikipedia: Dorothea Lange
