May 15, 2012 -- weary like me

These red poppies don't look quite as wilted as they are. I picked them almost by default today as I was harvesting some poppy pods. I was trimming them off the stems when I realized I couldn't toss them in the trash (still to beautiful!) so I put them in this vase with some other recycled windowsill materials.
I don't know which will collapse first--these poppy blossoms or me. I spent 4 hours on the road and 6 hours picking flowers today (for a wedding on Sat.). Flower Camp was incredibly beautiful when I started picking, and it didn't look much diminished when I finished! (That's Flora, the scarecrow, off in the distance.)
