poppy field

Gary Miller of Philadelphia has installed Papover Rubrum Gigaxiticum (the big red poppy) field. Those are solar-powered garden lights in the center, surrounded by cut and riveted aluminum, on PVC pipes that sway in the wind. Can’t wait to see it glowing in the darkness.

    Looks like somebody got a little inspiration from the 2006 art project, A Field of Sunflower Robots. :)

    Now I really wish I was there. Ever since I was a child, I’ve dreamed of laying in a red poppy field, a la Wizard of Oz… Opium is such a rare treat… and maybe because my ancestral roots come from near Afghanistan… ah, la Papaver!!

    Wish I could have seen them in person, but I’ll have to wait for Gary to get home and show me his pictures and tell me all about it. So far, my favorite!
