In Victorian times, the poppy was a symbol of eternal sleep, oblivion, and imagination. Children called them 'thunder flowers' because they believe that the petals will fall (which they always do) and they would be struck by thunder.

Of poppy fields.....
Each Saturday, we drive past a farmer's field that is planted up with large, pretty, pink poppies. We stopped to take some photos to share these majestic flowers with you here. Just driving by this site brightens my day! Click the photos to enlarge them.
