One of our favorite pastimes is wandering aimlessly through the countryside in France, both by car and on foot. And one of our greatest pleasures, while exploring, is seeing poppies everywhere. No matter where you are in France, from Spring into Summer, and then again in Autumn, poppies abound.
One of my favorite combinations – wild poppies and wild wheat – so emblematic of France.
They self-seed and pop up in the most unlikely places – like this one growing out of a stone wall.
It is quite common to see huge fields taken over by poppies.
Wild poppies continuously self-seed along the roadways, so they are everywhere you go!
