Poppy field in Haut-Alpes Provence

Yesterday I went on my annual pilgrimage to see the lavender fields in the Haut-Alpes. Some of the lavender was not quite in full flower but other fields were more advanced. Everything seems to be late, the sunflowers were still small and no where near ready to flower.

I came across a beautiful poppy field which was lucky as the farmer was in the adjacent field mowing his hay.
The painting above was painted from one of last years photos. Stay tuned for the new paintings from the latest batch of photos.
I shall post a few photos of the lavender fields tomorrow.
