Hello Monday! Do you see that picture on top of the post? It turned out not so bad but it is not a single bit like our minds had imagined it...
A week ago and so, the lovely Elena wrote a message telling me that she just had seen an Instagram picture showing that the poppies field near Barcelona was in full bloom. That precise poppies field had already been a (ghostly) theme in our photography when we took their engagement pictures in the same area for The cat in love. At that time, one of the backgrounds we had discussed with Elena for their pictures was the poppies field, but for our dismay we found not any single track of their existence. Therefore this time, with the Instagram evidence in our hands, we prepared "revenge" and planned a hike for the weekend to the area walking 3 different trails with two different poppies field to stumble upon, it was beyond impossible that we could miss them.
Well, we did not miss the field, but the poppies were almost gone, just a few rebels, to gave us a small consolation prize, were left. Nevertheless the trails were wonderful, we walked for more than 3 hours all the time by ourselves with just a brief encounter with 6 fidgety dogs and their human pal. We calmly walked through the woods & fields with wheat, wild flowers (mostly thistles) around us, perfect occasional city shutdown at 25 minutes from Barcelona.
What are you up to? Vacation mode ready? Last year on June we were at Cinque Terre, oh my... let's not further think about it because I'm already Italy homesick, ha! >
