Photo du Jour

An early coquelicot. By May 1 there will be entire fields in bloom. Pin It

I love poppies and their delicate silk-like petals. I was delighted to find pomegranate to be similar (in a slightly more orangey way).

Great photograph. Poppies are so beautiful--love the boldness of their red petals. They are such extroverts--really not meant for an introverted life in a vase.

What a wonderful flower and I can just imagine what a whole field would look like. I am a big sucker for red flowers!

I forgot to tell you that I love your new banner, so spring!

I think they're gorgeous and look forward to seeing them every year.

Glad you like the photo and I think you're spot on about a poppies "personality"

the fields are stunning. Every time I drive by one I want to slam on the breaks and start snapping photos!

I took the banner photo at the market yesterday. When I saw those bright purple new garlic bulbs I knew I had to get a few shots of them.
I love that color!

I like your banner too!

Thanks for helping me with my loaded market bag while I snapped that photo!

as soon as the fields bloom, I'll be trying to get some shots of them. :)
