Similar to the cyclamen, my favorite winter flower, poppies rank at the top of my list of spring bloomers. Yes, lilacs are majestic with a marvelous perfume. Yes, the powdery iris is king for many gardeners. For me, those red flowers blossoming through the cracks of broken up country roads here in the south of France take my heart away.

Their delicate stems that defy wind and rain carry the heavy buds that flower and become seed pods for next year’s garden.

Interesting you and Peter both had poppies for today's capture, but each of you with a different outlook. The beauty of photography, no two people see the say thing the same way smile

And at almost opposite points in Europe! 
While my poppy season is wearing up, Peter’s is starting.
