Eye Popping Poppies

Can’t beat the Californian poppies for their eye-catching colours. I saw these at Roxburgh on our drive into Central Otago, 29 October 2022. We stopped there for a bit, by the highway, and wandered around looking at the roadside verge and private gardens. These were growing in a rough grassy patch between street and private property. New Zealand.
