You’ve got to admire humble poppies – to start with, they are so enduringly cheerful – just looking at them makes you feel happy! They remind me of home in England, where in the summer we would be treated to wave upon wave of red fields…. a truly inspiring spectacle. The photo below is from a June visit back to Norfolk – I could have drowned in that field!
Poppies are so stylistic with their tall stems, delicate red petals and dark black centres – their imagery just begs to be used in design work. This is my Poppy Love Treasury in Etsy, showcasing items where poppies have been the inspiration:
Poppies are an inspiration I have also brought into my own jewellery design in this red coral petal and black onyx bracelet and necklace set:
Nature itself even borrows inspiration from its own creations – look at this incredible Poppy Jasper…..I think I’m in love!
Lest we forget – poppies are of course also associated throughout the world with the remembrance of those who died in order that we may be free – Never Forget.
