My #1 flower - field poppy. Dances in the sun when you look upon it but never asks for nothing in return. Lovely photo.

Absolutely gorgeous photo - we are in Norfolk too.
I adore poppies - my other half hates them, but puts up with my infatuation, just so long as I keep them to the bottom end of the garden. I think mine took a hammering today, though, with the storm - I'm yet to brave the garden to see the damage - i will be really miffed if all my poppies have gone - they only came into bloom at the weekend!

what a gorgeous pic, gone straight into faves. I had a heck of a job finding "proper" poppies online, they kept offering me California poppies until I found out that they call them "Flanders poppies".

The land near the coast is called Poppy land Fran , you can see why , I love to see it although the farmers are not always so happy as it can ruin their crops !

nods, them and cornflowers, wasn't it? grown with crops, "stole" food and space, so were exterminated almost to extinction.
