Poppy field in Kent
I went looking for poppies on Sunday and found these fields near Eynsford.  I was disappointed in the poppy show at this spot this year. According to the BBC:

The wild field poppy enjoys cultivated, disturbed soil, which is why swathes of scarlet blooms often appear in cornfields. The basic form has scarlet, single flowers, each petal often marked at its base with a black blotch. Size varies according to the soil in which plants grow, the poorer the soil, the smaller and paler the blooms.

For some more images from my outing see the short video here.
