We don't get this kind of poppies in Southern California. The California poppy is orange in color and blooms once a year in the desert and gives an incredible display. I've always been envious of the Europeans for having this red poppies in their neighborhood. So when I saw them in Morocco, I couldn't help but get so excited. I got our taxi driver to stop so we can frolic among the poppies in the field. I picked some and brought them back to the taxi.
This was became of them at the end of the day. They withered in the hot car but I had a lot of fun. I got to take a lot of pictures of them.
