Almost my backyard


I had to walk only 500m and took those pictures few minuets ago.Every year at the same time the poppies are back and each year there are more of them.Soon the hills and the fields around here will turn yellow again,

  1. Another backyard and a good one too. It is always lovely to see the poppies come out. The sky has some very dark clouds; perhaps you are in for some rain later. The poppies will like it.

  6. Almost your garden is a delight:) They bloom like the wild flowers do here in Australia [if there has been enough rain].

  9. Those poppies are beautiful. In my youth I lived in Spain and they grew everywhere in the fields until the dry season.

  11. How beautiful! I never imagined fields of poppies in Israel!

  12. Those poppies look lovely. Our state poppy, illegal to pick, grows a bit like a weed & can be seen growing along the sides of roadways, in between rocks & bits of pavement. The petals fit loosely around the flower head and are sort of flat & triagular-shaped. I really dig the Israeli variety.

    1. I don't remember so many of them as a child, they became more and more from some reason.

  13. I really like Poppy season, some of our fields become totally red. I believe Poppy seeds can lie dormant for years then suddenly appear again. Wonderful.

  14. How lovely to have that on your doorstep. Do you know what the orange flowers are that are amongst the poppies?
    Have you ever been to England?

  15. Googles tells me that the yellow ones are chrysanthmume, I have been to England 40 years ago, time to go again.(i have a family member who is a Lord in England, never met him. but other people in my family did,).

  27. Wow. I'm gobsmacked. They are fantastic. In Austria they eat the poppy seeds of the purple ones in Mohnstrudel, a cake which looks rather like a Swiss Roll.
