POPPY - Eternal sleep, Oblivion, Imagination

Walking around my garden I discovered this lovely poppy, where it has come from I do not know.

Poppies have long been used as a symbol of both sleep and death: sleep because of the opium extracted from them, and death because of their (commonly)
blood-red colour.

This poppy is not red but this beautiful pink, I love poppies but I just wish the flowers would last a little longer than they do, one blink of an eye and they are gone.
