Meanwhile, back in Saltaire...


Early summer is in full bloom, lots of lovely colour everywhere. These little California poppies (Eschscholzia californica) appear to have self-seeded along the railway embankment, bringing a vivid splash to what might otherwise be a dull area. I thought at first they were Welsh poppies (Meconopsis cambrica), which range in colour from yellow through to orange - but the leaves are different. I have Welsh poppies popping up through all the cracks between the stones in my yard and they look really pretty (and the slugs and snails don't seem to attack them either).

  1. Jenny; thanks for the comment on my blog. If you get a prime you won't regret it, the nikon 50/1.8 will do the trick without breaking the bank.

  2. Beautiful flowers that I hope are some compensation for trading the Adriatic for the Aire.

  5. You're back! If these little flowers are self-seeders, then Saltaire surely has better weeds than we get around here.
