„Blossom of poppy #7743”
The Waldviertel is known for poppy. Justifiably so? – I don’t know. But I know, that some women here are baking excellent Mohnzelten – a cookie filled with poppy seed!
This year is difficult. Very long there was snow and then it rained through whole May and one could cultivate nothing. At some sites the water drained the poppies. It flowered lately and does not stand high but still it is beautiful and a fine subject for photographers.
