The summer meadow ablaze with scarlet poppies was once a familiar sight, but modern herbicides have all but eliminated this beautiful wild flower from the countryside. Occasionally fine displays can still be seen on 'set-aside' fields like this one near the village of Cowley in The Cotswolds. The village Church in the distance completes this nostalgic scene.

The recent upsurge in popularity of wild flower gardening could signal the return of this wonderful sight, so reminiscent of a Monet painting.
