popped top

No sooner had I posted my poppy bud photo yesterday than I walked downstairs and discovered the bud had popped its top! The flower now looks like this and the little cap that had encased the bud is resting on the windowsill. So beautiful.  I'm guessing the flower will open the rest of the way today. And, unrelated but for the record: I saw an active hummingbird's nest in the woods near my home yesterday--with female darting around nearby and occasionally sitting on the nest. I'd have never spotted it myself, but a neighbor, who's an active birder, drew my attention to it. Also saw baby bluebirds with down on their backs and chickadees so newly hatched they were still "naked" and pink.
