May I add my congratulations too, Pat! These beautifully captured poppies make me think of the Wizard of OZ!! I wonder if I look close if I'll see Dorothy and the scarecrow!... Actually they're probably on their way to see the judges and give them some imput for the finals! Good luck on this wonderful composition!
