Wildflowers and poppies grow tall and bright amongst terraces of Olive trees in the village of Moustiers Ste Marie, in the Alpes de Haute region of Provence in France. This village is located in southern France, fairly close to the Italian border and therefore has an ideal climate for growing flowers and plants, and especially olive trees, which require hot weather to thrive.

Moustiers Ste Marie is located halfway up the edge of a cliff made out of limestone, which is an ideal soil base in which to grow many plants. Limestone is very rich and so wildflowers such as poppies will thrive in such soil conditions. As the south of France is also usually very hot, things grow quicker and richer and trees and plants such as olive trees can grow, which require a hot, dry climate.

Poppies can be found growing together in large fields of red, or as a single stand-alone flower. You can find poppies growing wild in many parts of the world, but they do favor a warm climate with plenty of room to grow in, such as on the side of this cliff face here. They grow well with other species and come in many different colors, the most popular and symbolic however, being red.
