The other day I went out to photograph a garden. I didn't end up with too much, but driving home, very near my house, I came across this farm field completely covered in red poppies. "Gee," I thought, "too bad I don't have my camera..." Then I realized I actually DID have my camera and turned around. Duh.

It's a good thing I did, because two days later the field had been plowed and the poppies were all gone.

I've been thinking about the poppies a lot. How did they get there? Did someone plant them? Is it a war memorial? Did a bird drop just one seed in the exact right spot years ago?
