My short words

"Oh! they want to get the sunshine!"

They were keeping the flowers pointed towards the sun.

The flower petals were brighter by the sunlight.

  • Iceland poppies make each long stem (peduncle) per one flower from close to the ground. [5]
  • The leaves are jagged like teeth of a saw. [3]
