Watching nature unfold for Ruby Tuesday

Above, a Black-capped Chickadee peers out of its chosen birdhouse over my garden area.By clicking on the photo to enlarge it you can clearly see the Chickadee's eye.
Watching these beautiful large poppies unfold is always an anticipated delight in my garden each year.Yesterday I noticed the beginnings of one beginning to open and soon it will unfold all of its beauty and look just like the second photo included of a mature blossom. I shall be checking on its progress each day.UPdate belowMAY 12th.

Wonderful little nature notes. Love how you caught the poppy as it begins to "unravel" its bloom.

This makes a great "circle" series...the cute chickadee peeking out of the perfectly round hole, then the unfolding circle of the poppy and finally the beautiful flower. Lovely!
