Meconopsis, or the Blue Poppy, is the national flower of Bhutan. I have learned that this flower was discovered in 1922 by a mountaineer while trying to reach the summit of Mount Everest. I guess it's hard to grow unless you have really fresh seeds and perfect condition.
Shoot! I'm sure Wisconsin doesn't fall into the category of "perfect conditions" but what a gorgeous flower with its crinkly tissue-like petals and interesting seed pods. I have used archival quality watercolors in shades of blue and turquoise, along with a TechLiner archival quality pen.
Just for an idea of what "Blue Poppies" will look like when matted and framed.
Thanks for looking!
