The Cretan Poppies

ABC Wednesday

One of the finest flowers seen in Crete is the wild Cretan poppy. So many people see so many flowers that the poppy is often ignored in favour of the wonderful orchids and the myriads of stunning flowers that are seen here. But I love the poppy. It is straight, wild and serene. It is absolutely beautiful.

  1. Poppies are beautiful – the seed lays buried for many years – the soil is disturbed and away they grow .. they flowered in their thousands on the battle fields of Flanders in the Great War.
