Long-headed poppies came from Europe in the 1960's. Now they are everywhere.

Beautiful I love the softness in the flowers :)

Whenever I see poppies, the poem In Flanders Field by John McCrae always come to mind.


"In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields."
 
Whenever I see poppies, Dr. Demento comes to mind.
 
This is brilliant. Love the angle.

Love the subtlety of this image... the poppies look so graceful :)
 
ナガミヒナゲシですね。
ここ数年、見かけることが多くなった帰化植物ですね。
一度何かの苗にくっついてやってきて可愛いから咲かせておいたら、次の年花壇が大変なことに…見つけたら抜くようにしているんだけど、今だに春になると芽を出します。
帰化植物のたくましさを実感しました。

Poppies are very promiscuous flowers and every so often a pinkish white one appears with a large seed pod... Lovely shot

Ok, Who did that? I bet, one of the Beatles smuggled a bit of seed into Japan, (or one of the Poppies)
 
This is lovely, Takahiro. So dreamy and light! :) Would make a nice desktop photo. ;)

+Takahiro Yamamoto Yes, the poem was written by a war surgeon during WWI. It is regarded as a prominent symbol for Rememberence Day (celebrated by the Commonwealth of Nations)
