poppies in Italy

It wasn’t until I spent time in Italy in June of 2012, that I discovered my love of poppies. Poppies are the main wildflower all along the roadways there. At least in the region of Abruzzo. The ones I saw were the bright orangey-red ones. Those are my favorite. Poppies are such happy flowers.

I worked for a florist for seven years so it was fun to visit a florist and greenhouse in Italy. I love flowers, all flowers, still nothing compares to the beauty of wildflowers.

Since my trip to Casoli, I incorporate poppies into my home. They take me back to my roots, a most beautiful place. One day, I hope to have a field of poppies and other wildflowers of my own.

Thank you for stopping by today! I know this was short but hopefully it was sweet. I’m enjoying this day and my time with you.

Coffee is so good with friends. ♥️

  1. Love this one.

    Grandma Kaiser have a patch of poppies to your right when you pulled in her driveway. The Crimson/red color you described. Whenever I think of poppies I think of that patch about 8’ x 8’. ❤️ you
