What flower is this?

How about this for red?  My eye was drawn to this flower because of the little oval holes created by the shape of the petals near the center that the light through.  I also like the frilly knob in middle and veins in the petals.  I have no idea what this flower is called but I really like it.

If you're in the mood for red, check out today's other Ruby Tuesday posts.


  1. Gorgeous red! And isn't all the detail interesting to look at? I don't think I've ever seen these before. There's not enough context for me to attempt an ID but I'm sure someone else will have an idea.

  2. Lovely photo! I know almost nothing about flowers but if I was going to guess -which I guess I am - I'd say a poppy. No idea, though, really.


I really appreciate your comments.
