Monthly Theme Day: Red

The first poppies are blooming in the countryside around Molfetta. Soon whole fields will be full of them in a gorgeous red explosion of color.


To see other expressions of this month's theme "red" check out other City Daily Photo blogs.

Just plain beautiful. I'd like to see one of those "whole fields" when they fill up with these poppies.

So beautiful! Now I start thinking about the new scarlet dress :-)))

I, too, will look forward to a red poppy field. You have followed up your wonderful iris photo a couple of days ago with a superb choice for theme day.

I hope Mystical Cosimo will admire driving by the red poppy field.

Your poppies are earlier than here, probably cos of the long winter we've had. What a lovely choice for today. Love your photo.

Poppies are right up there with nasturtiums in my flower popularity list. Happy Theme Day, Saretta!

A great RED theme day photo! Did you pick some and make a RED bouquet?

VP said...

Difficult to find something natural more red than this! Nice choice for our Theme Day!

Saretta, «Louis» thinks that this definitely qualifies as being RED! ;-)
Great choice for the theme day!

I hope you will show us those fields when it's time. This looks great.

Thank you for this little hint of Spring !
It's rainy in Paris... so your "gorgeous red explosion" is so good to my eyes.
