My poppies

A couple of weeks ago I took a trip to Chiba to see the blooming of one of my favorite field flower poppy! Ever since I was a little girl and read The wizard of OZ under the blanket with a flashlight I become fond of the vast flower fields full of poppies and cornflowers and clovers. My grandmother used to grow poppies in her garden because she often used its seeds for pies and cookies. So they were around me my whole childhood and it was such a treat to see a big poppy field again after so many years.

They were in full bloom and in so many colors. The best ones were of course red and pink ones. They way they tremble in the wind was almost magical. I just sat there and watched them dance..

Poppies grow nicely together with cornflowers so whenever you see a poppy field you can always spot patches of bright blue among the vast of red. I love running the field of wild flowers. It’s so liberating and it gives you so much positive energy and makes you remember how everything was so pure and carefree. 

Now, I am back to Russia for a vacation and tomorrow I’m going to my mom’s summer house that is right by a huge field of fireweeds. I’m so gonna spend most of my time there. ^-^
