Poppies

Twenty degrees at 8:30am, and a solid 28° at 10:30. Hazy blue skies and almost no wind.



When the grapevines are moved out, the poppies move in. A poppy field near Neive, in Piemonte's Langhe region.

It's a beautiful picture and I love poppies, how delicate and fragile they are and that they're better off left in a field because they just die so quickly if you pick them... Love from London x

The colours in this photo are glorious Louise.
Have you any idea why your posts appear as double entries on my screen?

Hi LindyLou - I was tinkering with the template HTML a couple of months ago and suddenly on the template a second Blog Post box appeared. I've yet to identify the offending code, so everyone gets everything twice. But look at it this way...you can't get too much of a good thing ;.)))

I kept wondering why I was seeing double... a joy shared is a joy doubled, I thought...

Love the poppies!

These are some gorgeous red poppies. I am amazed how many different colors of poppies there are! The Golden Poppy is the state flower of California.

Thanks for sharing. Have a great week!

Thanks for the explanation Louise and I couldn't agree more :)

Beautiful colors -- cheerful flowers. Interesting to know they grow where the grapevines have been removed.
