This lot must be an amazing sight! Beautiful shot, Marion!

@Betty: It was, but it was an area in our mobile home park that people just tossed their old plants in and this was the result. However, the park people came and mowed them down. Big meanies!!!

Superbe champ de coquelicots (not difficult to understand. :) )

7 Jun 2008 7:46pm

@Francesc B.: Car je n'ai jamais pris des Français à l'école que je la trouve un plus tard dur pour comprendre, mais je trouvais un emplacement merveilleux appelé Babelfish et il traduit tout pour moi. Vous avez dit que c'était un champ superbe des pavots. Merci tellement de votre commentaire.

What a startlingly colorful image. Wild poppies too... I have to plant those... and they don't populate in this way.
