After the rain...
Since the summer has officially arrived, the weather turns absolutely nuts. I can't remember the day without rain.
Even when the sun appears and it seems that the rain is finally over, it happens to rain again. And again...and they said it is going to be like that at least for the next 2 weeks.
There is a lovely field of poppies (those planted to get the seeds, that had the beautiful violet flowers ) on the way to our weekend, getaway house at Fruska gora. I was so sad that this year I missed taking the pics of that field in bloom, as we were in Italy during that blooming period, but I was impatiently waiting to the pods to get formed well and take the pics of them. I just love them!!!They have always been so inspirational.
So, last weekend between one splash of rain and another, I managed to go to that field and take some pics. I was so disappointed when I realized that due to all this rain, they have adopted many mouldy stains and spots all over.
I don't have the idea if the owner of that field will have the possibility of collecting any of the poppy grain from the pods(not b/c I just had to make myself a bouquet, to take it home), as they are just not looking very "healthy"...but I 'm so happy that I however had the chance to take all those pictures:)
Have a great and hopefully not rainy weekend, Katarina
