Lonesome Poppy.


During a walk through a field sown with grasses for sileage I spotted this lonesome Poppy....not the native red species that you would expect to see but a hybrid usually grown in a garden. So who carried the seed to allow this specimen to germinate and grace this green landscape with its purple-mauve bloom.....just  one of natures delightful mysteries.

I may be off-line for a while but will catch up with everyone in the not too distant future...FAB.

  8. And a beauty that lonely Poppy is too Frank. I always think them to be red, yet I knew there must be more colour variations~

  11. Ohhh; this is a Southern Poppy...at least I would call it like this: We have got them in Tuscany and you can see them; though always: alone...yes, they are tall, more resistent than the red delicate ones...but stand always alone..!
    I love them too!

    Have a great trip, Frank!
    ciao ciao elvira

  12. Frank, there are always little surprises everywhere you look, esp. if you look! Wherever you've gone off to, hope it was for pleasure. See you when you return. ~karen

  13. Superb Frank... Just one comment maybe, I would have cropped it differently with the flower on one side ;-)

  15. Perhaps it is not lonesome. Perhaps it is enjoying its solitude! Enjoy your break.

  16. Hi Everyone. Many thanks for all your comments on the lonely Poppy. We have seen thousands of red ones during our time away plus, of course, a few birds so will be posting some images from this trip as soon as I've sorted the photos.

    It may take me a while to catch up with everyone, so please be patient! Cheers.....FAB.
