Love this picture by George Crawford, taken on the road between West Kilbride and Ardrossan last week.
Bright splash of colour in what has been a fairly grey and overcast summer so far on the west Coast! (It was glorious today though).
Swaying gently in the breeze
poppies galore blooming with ease
raising their heads up to the sky
smiling widely certainly not shy
Fragile petals warm in the sun
flames of scarlet having fun
black eyes winking in hazy sunlight
dancing merrily for your delight
So when you pass this field of fire
take the time to stop and admire
silken petals with a waxy sheen
against a background of olive green.
