Found this in a garden in Plano, Texas.

In Asia, they are pollinated not by bees, but by beetles, attracted to the black center of the flame red flower. I wonder what pollinates them here.

I dont think the Beetles work any more in Plano Texas, but the Rolling Stones will pollinate anything.

Oh, pleasing to seesome poppieslollingwhen the wing is blowing!

Onmy hikes through the valleystheyoften remind me (thoughthe story belongs to another flower!) poor Hyakinthos' blood spilt on the grass when the discus hurled by Apollo hit himon the head accidentally!

Btw, Ihaven't really noticed they weren't pollunated by bees! Hey, but I think you're right:-)
