@alwaysspeakingwisdom, I'm sorry but beg to differ about the 'beautiful picture' aspect. Lots of colour, yes, but only in the foreground. The people are as important as the flowers. In my opinion, badly focused. And I have more than 20,000 photos from my trips around the country. Sorry, just one (published) photog's opinion.

A beautiful thing to behold, all of those blooming poppies.

After doing a bit of traveling, I have come to realize that red poppies are fairly common everywhere around the world, except here in California. Here we have the famous California poppies, which are also very beautiful, but instead of red, are a wonderful orange/yellow. Just saying.

For sure. When I was in the Navy stationed in California I mailed a pack of California poppy seeds to my folks in Ohio. Unfortunately they didn't bloom right in the Midwestern soil for some reason.

And elsewhere there are the famous red-cross poppies - white with a red 'cross' in the center.
