Poppy Field Sunset

Poppy Field Sunset

Hello there Buttoneers! Did you have a good weekend? I can’t get over the fact that the title of this blog post sounds like it should be the name of my band or my début record title! (for the record: I can’t sing!)

Over the weekend, my Fiancé and I explored our local area; we explored the Cotswold’s near us to find a beautiful field full of poppy flowers that my family had told us about. We found the area in Snowshill, after getting a little lost going on a little unplanned adventure, and it was so beautiful and breath-taking that I just had to share it with you all. Even the wooded lane to the field was enchanting and my imagination definitely ran away with me…

…as I am pretty sure fairies live here, amongst the pretty poppy flowers and the dandelion wishes, between the hairy seed heads and the magical dancing light amongst the greenest blades of grass…

As we walked into the field the pretty poppies were quite sparse and I was worried that they only looked like a red silky blanket from a distance. Poppy Field Sunset  at www.elistonbutton.com - Eliston Button - That Crafty Kid

But, as the sun started to set, the magic appeared in front of us!

The silky red poppy flowers became almost translucent in front of the sun rays and glowed in a gorgeous sea of flowers.

The whole scene was just breath-taking and we feel very lucky to not only have this so close to home but to have witnessed this gorgeous golden hour in this field that transported us into a magical dreamy place that could have been anywhere in the world, a million miles away from worry or stress or just the daily routine. It was my favourite.

As the sun bowed its head below the horizon, I felt very lucky. I felt carefree and so honoured to have witnessed nature at its finest…to stand together in wonder and just be still…just us two. It was perfection.

It also reminded me (wink wink) of my felt embroidered poppy brooch that I created as a part of my ’27 before 27′ blog challenge – remember that!? It seems like a lifetime ago! Just a friendly reminder that ‘Poppy’ and many ore lovely felty goodness brooches are now in my Etsy Shop! So please head on over and have a look.
