[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The image is about the lifecycle of a Poppy. You can find the bud, the full grown flower and the seeds, together in this picture. I took this picture at Lolegaon. Lolegaon is a small place under Darjeeling district, West Bengal. It is a very beautiful place with a variety of flora 'n' fauna. A wide variety of cactus and orchids are also available here. Visitors often come here for mountains as well as jungle beauty. The best time for visit is March-November.

A poppy is any of a number of showy flowers, typically with one per stem, belonging to the poppy family. They include a number of attractive wildflower species with showy flowers found growing singularly or in large groups; many species are also grown in gardens. Those that are grown in gardens include large plants used in a mixed herbaceous border and small plants that are grown in rock or alpine gardens.

The flower color of poppy species include: white, pink, yellow, orange, red and blue; some have dark center markings. The species that have been cultivated for many years also include many other colors ranging from dark solid colors to soft pastel shades. The center of the flower has a whorl of stamens surrounded by a cup- or bowl-shaped collection of four to six petals. Prior to blooming, the petals are crumpled in bud, and as blooming finishes, the petals often lie flat before falling away.
