June 16th – Looks like it’s going to be a good year for crop-field poppies: The gorgeous effect where these delightful flowers bloom amongst agricultural crops and present patches or whole fields of red.
At Stubby Leas near Elford, this gorgeous patch of big red flowers in a field of oilseed rape were absolutely delightful and a patch of brightness after the sun had gone in.
The feathery, fussy and lovely flower was found growing in a ditch, beside the quarry at Sittles, all by itself.
You can’t mention poppies without thinking of the symbolism of Remembrance and they are so beautifully appropriate.
You certainly never forget with these lovely tributes occurring naturally.
