There is a wild seed farm just outside of Fredericksburg Texas. All during the year there is a procession of blooming foliage. Once during the year the king of color eclipses every other species. Poppy, the red emperor of the garden, dominates all comers. People, viewers, respond to this subject so strongly it almost seems strange. Red, the strongest of all colors seems to sooth us and excite us. It is fun to paint and famous to show.
