These pictures were taken just outside Stourport in Worcestershire on the Bewdley road, about 14 miles from Worcester. They were featured on the BBC Midlands Today programme yesterday so as soon as I'd dropped my daughter off at school this morning I grabbed my camera and jumped in the car in search of this marvellous spectacle. I wasn't really sure where I was going but I needn't have worried, a hillside field of scarlet poppies is hard to miss!

  1. Wowee Sue Talk about a red tide!!!!!! Is the farmer organic or just forgetful? If he is then I'm glad as a glad thing. How cheery!!!!!!!!!!!

    That's just beautiful - a wonderful sea of red brilliance. That's cheered me up no end today! Wouldn't it be even lovelier if there was a field of lavender next to those poppies?


  4. Oh my - that is gorgeous, like a sea of red and all I can think of doing is rolling down the hill in true little house on the prarie style!

  5. Nina, they wouldn't let you do that -lol! There were notices telling you not to go too far into the field :o)

    Nancy, thanks for your comment and for stopping by :o) I don't know how you found me on Ravelry, are you sure you aren't confusing me with someone else? Lucy of Attic24 perhaps?
