New Sketches! Poppy Seed Cases

It’s that time of year when flowers start to go to seed. These are from Papaver rhoas, the Flanders poppy, named when millions of bloomed in the summer following the end of WWI, covering the pulverized ground in France where huge battles were fought. To this day, in England and France, this red poppy is for Remembrance. It’s an annual that self-seeds in my beds. I also save the heads, shake out the seeds and sow them around for next year.
