2012, Day 170 - Sunny heart

I was walking past a house only a few blocks from my own with the dogs this morning and I noticed these flowers in bloom.  They are large, maybe five inches across, and have the look of a large poppy but I am not certain that is what they are.  Some of the forms are quite similar but the colors are different.  Something like those of an egg cooked sunny-side up.  I love the crinkled leaves, the dusting of pollen on the petals, the rich golden color.  It is a visual treat.
