Flower Photo: Iceland Poppy, 'Champagne Bubbles'

Iceland Poppy Photo by Aquariann

New Year's Eve is one of the rare occasions I consume champagne. Although I enjoy it, drinking it more often just wouldn't be as special! However, I did sip champagne two days in a row last week.

Friday I stopped by Oak Creek Wine & Spirits' annual New Year's Bubbly Tasting to help me decide what kind to buy to welcome 2017. Obviously none of the samples' colors were anything like this vibrant orange flower named "Champagne Bubbles." Photographing the Iceland Poppy at Longwood Gardens last spring did go right to my head, though!

How To Plant Your Own Post for Flower Friday:
The only rule to play is that you can only add one link per week! The post doesn't even have to mention flowers, but only ones that do will be eligible for being picked as a feature next week. I will be sharing my flower image on other blog hops, namely Wordless Wednesday, and welcome all family-friendly links from fellow bloggers. Crafters can even link up an Etsy listing or other shop product! But if you want to promote a prize, please add it to my Giveaway Chest Linky instead to entice more treasure hunters.

Please follow my blog through any of the social media icons in the upper right sidebar to receive a reminder to return next week. Adding my button or a text link to your own blog and sharing to your followers is also a fairy appreciated way to help my hop grow.
