Red Poppy and Raindrops

Red Poppy and Raindrops 

It rained enough today to pull on the poncho’s, a soft gentle rain that is good for the ground and the flowers. I needed to get down in the grass along the side of the road, to get close enough to the poppy I wanted to show the raindrops, and then wait for that perfect moment when she was standing still to get this shot.

I love seeing the beautiful red poppies blowing in the breeze beside the road.

The timing for our walk through Spain, and the Via la Plata has been perfect for spring flowers.

Hopefully we have more sunshine and less rain tomorrow.

    1. Thanks Nathan, thanks for visiting, and taking time to comment; glad you like the images. Extremadura is not completely desolate! we are currently in Caceres, a beautiful city rich with history!


      1. That is one region of Spain I have yet to visit and the only familiarity I have with it is their exported date/fig “bread” in specialty markets in the US. So I’ve always pictured it as this empty plain full of fig trees and not much else!

        Also how is the wifi out there? It wasn’t so bad on the Camino Frances. Keeping a blog makes that a very pertinent question 🙂
