    Beautiful photos–so *summer*!

  3. Fab field of poppies. They are abundant this year but I’m waiting to find the perfect poppy field! I found one last year like yours, it’s on my blog, it’s just a farmer’s field but full of that wonerful bright red! 🙂

    Either the farmer hasn’t sprayed his wheat or he applied a weak mixture leaving the poppies for us to enjoy.

  5. Living where we do I never get to see cornfield poppies, such a heavenly sight. Thank you for sharing.

    • It is wonderful to see the poppies with traditional corn too. Where I walk the dog in the morning, most of the fields contain that strange one foot high version of corn. Poppies wouldn’t have worked with those!!

    I haven’t seen a field like this for years. How lovely.

    • It looks to be a very romantic idea from the farmer. I remember about five years ago another local farmer sowed poppies with an oil seed rape crop, up a hillside and that looked fantastic. However, I was told that he planned to spray the whole crop before gathering so that ended up being a bit depressing.

        I don’t know enough about the economics and techniques of farming but it seems such a shame that poppies are rarely tolerated.
