Red Poppy Fields In Provence

Red poppy fields dotted the landscape throughout Provence in early May. We spotted a field packed with red blooms on the D900 near Bonnieux; the field was so beautiful I couldn’t help myself but cry amazed by the beautiful display of color. Pregnancy hormones, maybe? The field was solid red and framed by a blue summer sky.

Throughout our week we spotted red poppies growing in cracks and dispersed in overgrown fields. From our apartment in Bonnieux we could see large red blocks of poppy fields out in the distance. So spectacular!

  4. Katy, have you seen “Postcards from Provence – daily paintings” yet? I have been following it for a while, and this post reminds me of one of the daily paintings posted this past week. http://shiftinglight.com/ I thought you would enjoy some of the paintings now that you have seen the subject in person. You captured these poppies so beautifully – thank you for a glimpse into that little slice of poppy heaven!
