The Poppy and the Rose
The Poppy and the Rose Two flowers stood at the edge of Loch Ness in the Scottish countryside overlooking the water on a bright sunny day. Sunlight reflected off the glassy surface as the waves churned in the wind. A storm was brewing in the sky behind them, and the humidity was rising off the charts along with the sun. The one on the right was a poppy, the one on the left was a red, red rose.
