Pictures from photo gallery: "All Pictures"

A cheerful sight, a mass of wild poppies otherwise known as "Coquelicot" in France. The silky petals wave gracefully in the light breeze like a symphony.

Although wild poppies are considered more of a native wild flower or an indigenous weed, they sure are a delight to see when clustered together in a field beneath towering cliffs of rock, creating a contrast of colour and landscape.

Wild poppies grow in various colours including vibrant, bright red, pinks, whites and sometimes even grayish-mauve shades.
