Poppies mean Spring!

Artist's Description

W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm
.
All species of poppies are attractive and most are cultivated as ornamental plants. A few species have other uses, principally as sources of drugs and foods. The opium poppy (Papaver somniferum) is so widely used, for both drugs and food, that its worldwide production is monitored by international agencies. It yields opium and opiates, poppy seeds for use in cooking and baking, and poppy seed oil for culinary and other uses, and is also cultivated as an ornamental plant. In South Africa we plant poppies in April for a stunning display in winter and spring.
