Poppies

We found a Poppy Field

Every year, when it’s June, the hunt for a poppy field was on. I used to make artwork with poppies and needed to collect hundreds of petals each year to keep the artwork/collection up. Now i’m officially over poppy artwork, but i still love the flower. So no more hunting for poppy fields, but if I happen upon on, it’s a great experience and photo opportunity.

I have lots of people emailing me to ask where I find the poppy fields, so here is a link to the map of where I found this one – right behind Failand Village Hall in Bristol.

I found a poppy field

I finally found a field of poppies. Having searched for one for a long time (seems like you just need to happen upon one, no one knows where they exist) I was introduced to this one by my lovely boyfriend.

The poppies were quite sparse, but there were still thousands of them, and really tall too. The field was on the right hand side of the road if you’re joining the A46 towards Bath from the M4. Just a bit past the Marshfield bakery/dairy/ice cream place.
