    Someone here is .... ;) we have one of the largest LEGITIMATE Opium Poppy operations in the world down here. They supply the pharmaceutical industry. I have another pic where the fields of them run off into the distance. All there by the side of a country road ! There are lots of warning signs about death and the like of course.

    Easily my favorite photos I've taken for this thread.

    Buttercup with a golden crab spider laying wait for it's next meal.

    Legend has it, that if you hold a butter cup under your chin, and your chin glows yellow, you like butter! Just look for crab spiders before picking one. :)

    Here's some Milk Thistle I saw along the trail on a hike recently. I don't know if it's considered a flower but I think it looks pretty interesting. I know it's edible and is good for the liver.
