A field of poppies between Pouillé and Mareuil-sur-Cher

To date 2012's climate in the Loire hasn't been easy for the vines but it appears to have been right for poppies as this trio of photos shows taken near the Clos Roche Blanche in Mareuil.

That field is getting a lot of blog space :-) Several people I know have stopped to photograph it.

Susan. Not really surprised it's a pretty arresting sight, although there are others. Took these on the 7th June.
