For such a short time

While I was getting dressed and ready for school the other morning, I was lucky enough to witness this Papava Poppy waking up. 
 It had some Icelands there ready to play with, so that was encouraging.  This is the first time I've had round 2 with my poppies, and it's been a delight.
 The beautiful morning sun was distracting me as it was catching the petals and plants so deliciously.

 I'm sure I was opening before my very eyes.



 Duty called, however and I couldn't quite wait long enough . . .
 But when I got home in the afternoon, I was welcomed with this.

. . . and then this morning, this . . . 
Such beauty and wonder, for such a short time.
