There is a difference between Anemones and Poppies. Have a close look!

 Those are anemones.

Those are poppies.



Oh yes, the burning red color is almost the same!

Huhu Yael,
diese Bilder sind ein Genuß.
Besonders da es heute morgen bei uns auf den Straßen ganz schön glatt war...gar nicht schön.
Da sind deine Bilder ein echter Lichtblick.

Liebe Grüße von Birgit und Barny

Ins Weiße des Anemonenauges geschaut... Wundervolle Bilder! Geradezu trostreich in unserer Ödnis.

Hello, again. I’m kind of a sucker for flowers. I can’t resist going out with my camera when I hear certain flowers blooming. I do love these passionate red anemones and poppies, so thanks for sharing. In my impression, petals of poppies look more translucent.

Thank you Yael!!!! :)
The red fields I photographed in Rhodes last April were definitely poppies! :) You are my flower expert, Yael! :)

Have a wonderful weekend among all those dreamy flowers of Israel!!!

Thank you so much Yael for this.
You are the first Israeli I have come across who distinguishes
between anemones and poppies!
67 years ago, When I lived in Jerusalem,
the anemones painted the hills
round there at this season blood red.
I suppose like most cities in the world
concrete is now the dominant feature.
When I lived on Mt Carmel a little earlier
the hills there used to change colour during the course of spring.
The sequence as I remember was

red - anemone
orange- ramunculus
pink - a very fragile flower we called flax
yellow - a tall daisy type

Of course there were many other beautiful flowers
but they didn't alter the view from a distance like those 4
