An unfolding

In the few moments before a wild, windy, hail-laden, storm struck the house this afternoon, I ventured outside to gaze upon this amazing poppy, planted at the edge of the garden, and observe the first unfolding of this year.  I almost felt as though I was intruding on a private occasion!
Showing her pink folded petals, for the first time this spring, I stood in awe (again) at the magic of spring and rebirth that greets us at this time of year.  My hope is that the wild winds whipping around our house at this minute won't damage this unfolding.
I am easily imaging waking tomorrow to this pink wonder, fully opened, in the garden.
