Here by Glimpses Known - Poppies



 A field of poppies is one of my favorite springtime sights in France.





 And far and wide, in a scarlet tide,
The poppy's bonfire spread
. --Bayard Taylor

I have this art print over my desk at work, which is as close as I can come to your beauties above: http://www.art.com/products/p12209211-sa-i3587363/steve-thoms-poppies.htm?sorig=cat&sorigid=0&dimvals=5010631&ui=aa7e76ae950a4d8d9765253270dcb233

I'm a sucker for red and gold, I have to admit, and that painting is so well balanced shape-wise I couldn't resist. It gets a lot of compliments from co-workers.

Yes, and the red of poppies is just intoxicating.

I wanted to go back and take more photos today, but sadly, as was the case when you invited people to take weekend pics, it is raining. Not good for the camera or me to be crouching in a wet poppy field.
