Of course, her name it comes from the ancient Greek name Kalliopi!ReplyDeleteScintilla @ Bell'Avventura19 June 2009 at 07:42I love these poppies. The opium poppy is illegal to grow in some countries but I let mine self-seed because I cannot bear to pull them out! The seed heads look great dried too.ReplyDeleteDelwyn19 June 2009 at 09:59Hi AnneI had to call by and see your poppy as I have a daughter by that nameThis is a very special poppy - so different and beautiful...Happy daysReplyDeleteNotes from Noël19 June 2009 at 10:53Beautiful picture!
