Poppy - Coquelicot

From all the greenness of the countryside the splashes of red make an attractive distraction.

Fields of poppies or a few by the roadside are always welcome.

J’ai descendu dans mon jardin
Pour y cueillir du romarin,
Gentil coquelicot Mesdames
Gentil coquelicot Messieurs

Vieille chanson française.

its interesting that you call them poppies too - I thought that it was a very typical afrikaans word -
