Ornamental Poppy – yep, if you had enough of these you could produce some opium from them – but not much, so they're legal, and odd. It's probably best just to sit in the garden and read Confessions of an English Opium-Eater (1821) – Thomas De Quincey describing his laudanum (opium and alcohol) addiction. We all, at one time or another, seek that pleasant dream state.

These photographs were taken with a Nikon D200 – the lenses used were AF-S Nikkor 18-70 mm 1:35-4.5G ED, or AF Nikkor 70-300 mm telephoto. The high-resolution photography here was modified for web posting using Adobe Photoshop 7.0 software.
