Ile de Re, 'The Green Fields of France' Poppies

View Large


Just home, hope this one is not just a bit too cliched, but this is something we would just never see in Ireland, so I was delighted to get the opportunity to photograph this, as I am often envious of all the wonderful poppy field shots I see on Flickr. My Mum had a triple bypass while I was away and survived, thank God, so we are all very happy. I picked her up from the hospital today and she is staying with me for a while to recover. She had the op a week ago today. The marvels of modern medicine.


I have missed you all, my Flickr friends and look forward to catching up with all your streams.
