I have the good fortune of having family living in Belgium and Germany, and have visited them in the summer. Bright red poppies grow across much of central Europe in old empty farmer's fields. It is very beautiful. The locals call them weeds- I wish we had weeds as pretty over here in the US.
I am attaching a small image of poppies I took in Germany near Koblenz on the Rhine in 2004.
