Flower Of The Year 2017

My most vivid childhood memories take me back to warm summers and fields full of wildflowers.

This summer it was a challenge to find fields with wild bursting flowers, even though I do live in a very green and flourishing area of Germany. This is one of the reasons I planted red poppies in my garden.

{Remember how I picked some for our apartment and they turned pink all of a sudden?}

This is also the reason why I am so happy the german Loki-Schmidt Trust has named red poppies as the Flower Of The Year 2017! Just look at their beauty and I cannot imagine fields without these colorful sprinkles!

So lets say goodbye to summer 2017, but not without paying tribute to one of the most wonderful flowers of 2017 ❤
