Papaver

All those of you who expect a review of Opium now.... I am sorry, I have to disappoint you. The papaver flower (poppy flower) to the left is here because it is beautiful and because it happens to flower in my little green place in front of the house.
If you look at it closely, you will see a symetry built into it that is underlying its beauty. On the same time it is not symetrical, with the red petals each being unique. This is one aspect that makes natural things so unique, the simple, logical plan and underlying principle, paired with highest complexity and disorder.
These few words as food for thought today. I send you all my best wishes and hurry through a sun bathed Zurich, enjoying finally the pre-summer sun of June on the go.

Wow Andy, on my way to work, I walk past a little shaded area that seems to have grown wild. It's fenced off, so nobody can disturb nature growing there. A few weeks ago were a few clumps of bluebells, which I love. This week a single poppy appeared. It wasn't the usual deep red variety like on t=your photo. It was a very pale pink colour and very large.
