Roses are red.
Poppies are too.
If you’re unsure,
Here are photos for you!
The next verse must be read with an American accent for it to rhyme:
A region of France
Has red poppies galore
And here’s some for Nanc!
Sorry, Nancy. Couldn’t resist!
Heyjude has shared with me that they are Papaver rhoeas, commonly known as corn poppies or field poppies. They are found throughout Europe in late spring. Thanks, Jude.
And here are some totally unrelated photos for those of you in the frozen north – some Mediterranean beach scenes from France. I “stumbled” on them in the same photo folder after the poppies. Hold your hands up to the screen and feel the warmth.
Roll on spring and warm weather!
