opium poppies 7/8

Posted by JCJ (Troyes, France) on 24 June 2012 in Landscape & Rural.

it's the (short) period of pink flowers in the countryside... they are not numerous but each year, one can see opium poppies in the openfields. it's of course for medical use! see this article: http://www.larecherche.fr/content/actualite/article?id=10446
