FOTD – September 15 – More Poppies!

Last time (FOTD Sept 12) i posted some of my first ‘traditional’ rememberance poppies – with variations. This time some of my ‘wild’ poppies (Papaver argemone) which have come up in abundance, including where i never planted them!

(You can click pics to get a better view in a new window!)  🙂
