Pop a Poppy

The Winter Solstice and I seek a suitable photo both for that and for Maria’s #2019picoftheweek challenge. And have to flip the calendar back to summer…

The common field poppy: 4th June 2019

The vibrant red of the common field poppy, *popped* against washed-out grey foliage, makes me think of the Solstice’s promise of new life at this grey and weary time of year.

Pop of Colour, one of the titles in #2019picoftheweek challenge. For details see MariaAntonia
