50 Shades of Poppies

It has come to my attention during my runs and walks over the past few days, through the poppy field and the Owl Land, that poppies come in all shapes, sizes, varieties and colours.

I had no idea!

I wanted to get away from all the referendum debates and have thus been watching a very quiet man from New Zealand hauling giant brown trout out of tiny streams. It reminds me I've never fished for trout, let alone caught one.

I don't think the trout would be in any danger if I tried, actually.

  1. The only flower that can make me cry ......

  2. It's very powerful when you see a field full of them

  3. Glorious. I've caught trout before. More by luck than judgement :-)

  4. The poppy is beautiful, easy to notice, and to remember. Love it.

  5. They're all gorgeous! I'd love to have poppies in the fields here as well, but we only have lupines.
