Macleaya Cordata - Plume Poppy

This is one of my favourite plants, and this year it is thriving alongside a hot dry wall at home. I took these photos in early morning, from the deck, when the background was still in shade, and the leaves and 'flower plumes' were brightly lit. Aren't they gorgeous?

The underside is white and felt-like, so it has extra interest in the wind, seen above.
