Well, that isn’t really the name but it could have been. This was the only place where a hillside with lots of poppies and a few lavender flowers that I didn’t know the name of. I loved all the colors here and to top it off – there were nice clouds in the sky.

    Ooooooh Betty…you are coming up with some cracking images….this is absolutely fantastic….wow….I mean WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Thank you Lyn – it was so nice to get out of the dreary weather where I live and be in someplace warm and sunny to take photographs! My finger is sore from pressing the shutter so many times – photo ops were everywhere! LOL.

    How very beautiful Betty [I think the purple are cornflowers but I could be wrong] I’ve only seen a field of poppies like this one other time and it was in a picture taken in California. How lucky for you to have had this opportunity!

  • thank you Lianne – you are right, I think. I went to California hoping to see entire hillsides covered in poppies, but they weren’t completely out yet. I did manage to find a few hills with patches like this though and I was pretty happy about that!

    Oh wow, never seen so many, and on a great location too ! Big fave.

  • Thank you for faving this – I’m really flattered. I was really happy to have found this patch. Actually, while the image looks like the whole hill was covered, the orange flowers in the background were fiddleheads, I think, but they were orange and from a distance, they looked like poppies!

    this is stunning, a real feel good shot!

  • thank you – it was so warm and sunny that day (poppies apparently only open up when the sun is out) that it does make you feel good!
