Amapolaaaa…

In May, wild poppies bloom across Spain, dotting fields with blooms so vibrantly red they almost seem to glow. It’s common for poppies to grow in large clusters of plants, but this field of them near Albacete is, by far, the biggest I have ever seen. Photo ©Mike Randolph

    Beautiful contrast in colours in this picture. What a sight.

      Christmas colors in May! It WAS a spectacular sight. If I had to guess, the length of the field where the poppies were growing had to be over a kilometer. It was at least ten times bigger than the biggest one I had previously seen.

      Thank you, Christine. I’ve never seen poppies in the Basque country. Do they grow there? Maybe I’ll find out in one of your future posts!
