The poppies are out up near Devils Dyke. Millions of them! A few years ago they seemed to spring from nowhere and then last year I noticed that the fields appeared to have been covered in lighter coloured earth and the poppies did not appear. I wondered if the farmer had tried to kill them off. I guess that farmers do not want millions of poppies in their corn field but then what do I know about farming? Anyway. One morning on the way to work I stopped and took this bit of video.
