Prolific Poppies

While the irises in my garden are fading away, wild poppies are prolific all along the roads where Lucie and I walk every day. They are so cheery! This is a new time of year for me in France. Last year by this time, I was back in the States, getting ready to spend the summer in northern Wisconsin working at Red Pine Camp. I'm excited about spending this summer here in my new home. Already the calendar is beginning to fill up with fun things: brocantes, town celebrations, village fetes, aperos, music, art exhibits, and more. Sounds like it will be a busy summer!
I keep trying for the quintessential poppy picture! Do you have a favorite?

  1. The poppies are amazing this year. In fact they are so prolific that I have had to pull them out in places to allow my 'official' plants some space!
