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.
