Poppies



Poppies were blooming practically everywhere we went last week in Italy. The first picture shows a couple of blooms one of our fellow travelers picked while we were stopped at a rest stop on our way to Assisi. I took the second shot while we were walking around the Forum in Rome. Unfortunately, those poppies in the Forum would not be still no matter how hard I tried to get a good picture. They were too busy dancing around in the wind!

That is the symbol of WWI The fields were full of poppies during the fights. I like this flower that flourishes here too.

Very perky, peppy, purdy poppies! I saw an Italian blog yesterday which featured the poppies in another region - they are truly beautiful...

I went to Italy in mid-May and also saw a lot of poppies everywhere I looked. They were especially beautiful in the fields in Tuscany.

They are pretty. I know they grow on top of the War Museum here, but that's the only place I've seen them in these parts.
