CIMG2018 CIMG2023 CIMG2022


  1. That is so beautiful :-) completely different to the poppies I have seen recently.

  2. Popp is the name of my wife! Of course, her name it comes from the ancient Greek name Kalliopi!

  3. I love these poppies. The opium poppy is illegal to grow in some countries but I let mine self-seed because I cannot bear to pull them out! The seed heads look great dried too.

  4. Hi Anne
    I had to call by and see your poppy as I have a daughter by that name
    This is a very special poppy - so different and beautiful...

    Happy days

  5. Beautiful picture! Finally, warm weather and sunshine!

  6. Oh, pure beauty.
    This colour is a favorite this summer :-)

    Is it from your garden?

  7. Hi Anne,
    That is exquisite ! Gorgeous color.
    I do like the name itself of Poppy. its's sounds bright & cheery.

  8. Lovely Anne!
    I've never seen this type of Poppy before.
    It simply stunning!


  9. They are stunning photos. I didn't know these were the opium poppies. If I grew these it would be for their beauty - don't want, and don't need to go on any Coleridge trip.
