California Poppy on a Sunshiny Day

The California poppy also known as Eschscholzia californica looks a dramatic orange in the bright sunshine. Not usually the best time to take flower pics but seeing them swaying against the blue sky made me feel happy.

Cornflower blue

The brilliant blue colour of the cornflower really is eye-catching even in a field of meadow flowers.¬†According to folklore, cornflowers were worn by young men in love; if the flower faded too quickly, it was taken as a sign that the man’s love was not returned.
