Hi again Gligo ~ this is a lovely shot and the fountain almost looks like the head of what we call a dandelion in seed :)

I guess the Red Field Poppy shots are coming later ~ Ciao nick

Hi, Nick! Thanks for visiting, I love to see your comments...

Now, when I look better and add a little imagination, you really are right! Really looks like a dandelion in seed!!!

"Red Field Poppy" shots I had no intention to put in Panoramio, but now I should think about it :)))

Greetings, Gligo
