Thank you to Tanayji and Narendraji!  Actually I had heard of the Himalayan blue poppy before, and photographed them thinking of the connection. Also persons of Indian origin like me and my daughter and son are caught in a kind of vaccuum and so our "catch" with this kind of world-connection made the stay away from home bearable. My daughter had gone for her A-level exams. Then when I saw the photos provided by Gargji I was thrilled to see the real thing. And now I am happy to tell you the story of this photo.  :) :)
