Hails from Canada
Lightbulb Plant Parade: May 2010

Welcome to the May 2010 edition of the Floral/Botanical project

Spring is in Full Bloom now in the Northern Hemisphere………..
So I thought that this month, we’d do a flower that blooms this time of year, for a few weeks that we all Oh, and Ah….about, and then wait until they open their fabulous blooms again next year,
…….“The Poppy”…… .

These wonderful flowers, of many different varieties, are found all over the world, from the Antelope Valley, in California, to the Himalayan mountains, to the fields of France and Iceland.
They are also used as a symbol all over the world for War Veterans.
There’s even some poems about them, one of the most famous being…” In Flanders Fields”………the Poppies blow, Beneath the crosses, row on row………written by Canadian John McCrae (link to more info: HERE )

They come in some fabulous colors, from Orange to purple red to whites. Many varieties, from singles, to double, Oriental and Ice Poppies. So many to choose.

There are few 'rules' - the main one being we do not reveal any work until 25th of the month.

Any medium Any size, is welcomed
Use any one or more of the photos shown here, or in the RIL.
You are also free to use your own photo’s.
Crop, enlarge, (I would love to see some macros), miniaturize, simplify, and exaggerate ... whatever you wish, but make your main focus

Above all - enjoy yourselves!!!

This Months References:

These are all from our own Reference Library.
larger versions can be found there here's the link for the
and a thank you to all the members who contributed them who's names will be beside each photo.



Hope you can join us this month for some painting and fun.
Start early, but don't post it/them till the 25th.
See You There.....
Cheers Sharron.... .........C & C Always Welcome........
