Farm fields of flowers

Driving through the Willamette Valley, near Silverton, Oregon I saw a field of poppies being raised for seed.  This wonderful agricultural area is known for fruit, wine, and more but I didn’t know there would be fields of flowers.DSCN7271What a crop! For me it was simply beautiful but for the farmer it was a business, a crop subject to the risks of weather and insects.  I’m grateful for the farmers and I am delighted someone grows the flowers.
