Poppy fields, what’s not to love? Alone, a poppy flower might not catch your attention like a lone hyacinth or a catleya would. But when they grow together, they can turn an abandoned field or a construction site into a beautiful scenery.
I was lucky to have landed a job in mid-June just when the poppies were in full bloom. Sitting on the top deck of a double-decker bus, I was enjoying the lush greeneries of the trees by the roadside and beyond.
And then I spotted the poppy field, just next to a construction site. The heat of summer was getting into full swing so before those poppies disappear, I carried my camera to work and on my way home I stopped by the construction site.
Standing next to the scarlet-clad field, I became engrossed by the sheer beauty of the humble poppy flowers growing in the field. Too bad it was located out of anyone’s view else many people would have loved to come and enjoy the sight.
