The third poppy

I started the third or foreground poppy.  I first outlined all of the outside petal edges with a single strand of the Splendor.  Next and again with a single strand I have started filling in the back petal and the curve of one of the center petal in the long and short stitch.This flower is a reversal of colors in that the center is going to be the darker shades and the outer edges will be the palest.

This is a beautiful thing - I'm glad to see it back in the rotation.
