All alone in a field

Our neighbour stopped the rather large tractor to call my attention to a single poppy standing tall in the field of oats he was mowing. It was a threatening afternoon, the clouds heavy, rain was forecast and the wind was making it almost impossible to take a photo. The poppy was throwing itself in every direction as the wind caught it.

It must have been self sown. Occasionally they pop up in that area of the farm. The flower was delicate and beautiful.

Up close it was a work of art.

The promise of more next year.

  1. What a beauty! You should go by in a few weeks to check to see if the pod has dried enough to harvest (the seeds rattle in the pod). There’s potentially 100s of plants in there for next spring. 🙂

    1. Yes, potentially there are. Sadly, it’s actually illegal here in Victoria, to grow those sort of poppies, so I won’t be spreading them around. Still they do pop up unannounced sometimes. They are so pretty. Too bad they’re so prolific.
