Poppies in Provence — 6 Comments

  1. Thank you, Kathy, for posting these beautiful photos…The open fields and the bright red-orange poppies were my absolute favorite thing about Provence. It all reminded me of my childhood in rural New Hampshire and I felt so at home there. I was missing it all the other day and was so happy to find your pics. Thanks again!

  2. Kathy & Charley,
    Could you please tell me what time of year the poppies are in season? Is it May through to end of June. Or just May?
    Much appreciated

  3. Karen, the poppies in this area of Provence (the Calavon Valley north of the Luberon) usually bloom in May, depending on the weather. Fields seem to bloom at slightly different times and are at peak usually only about two weeks. By mid June you’d normally begin to see lavender in bloom.
