It was an extraordinarily wet spring in Puglia, and suddenly I found myself standing waist-deep in a field of Puglia wildflowers.

The vineyards are flooded, although beautifully. This is just off the road. We stopped the car, I got out and was mesmerized by the scene. Cars honked because the car couldn’t be pulled off the road entirely, but heck, worth it.

Those red European poppies really make a picture snap. When the leaves are young, they are eaten in salads.
