What's Blooming Today? Peony, Poppy and Foxglove

Early summer brings my favorite time in my garden... fully grown, yet still fresh and blooming in all corners! I captured this salmon oriental poppy after the petals dropped but I love the center...there's a line from 'Where is Your Heart At?' by Rufus Wainright ~ " Your satin flip-flops are hidden in the pockets of your velvet dressing gown..." ~ which this flower reminds me of...I'm sure there are satin flip flops hidden in there somewhere!
The peonies are holding their own in all the rain we've had of my favorites is this fuchsia single with the bright yellow center. How could a person be blue in the face of that????
