We we were out and about a few weeks ago and on our way to Cambridge Botanical Gardens so we could take some pictures of the plants there when we happened to pass a beautiful field full of poppies near Harston in South Cambridge. Luckily we had the cameras with us and we felt compelled to stop and take some pictures as the field looked so stunning. We also had a lot of ornamental poppies out in the garden too, which seemed to peak at their best as we reached July this year, a bit later than usual and they looked simply beautiful. When we were in the Lake District in June we came across the most stunning blue oriental poppies at Dalemain, a historic House on the outskirts of Ullswater and at the Botanical Gardens in Cambridge there was beautiful array of Californian poppies. So we seem to have acquired quite a collection of 'poppy' pictures this year that I wanted to share. Enjoy the poppies!
