Thank you. My wife also likes them a lot and likes to pick them to make fresh flower bouquets at home. Greetings, Henryk.

Reminds me

of my childhood when the grain fields in Denmark would be full of them. Nowadays they spray against them, and they have grown much rarer. A beautiful flower, often used to compare the colour of a girl's eyes with (few can live up to that)!

Re: Reminds me

There are still areas in the Low Beskid where they don't spray the fields and you can find lots of cornflowers, poppies and chamomile in them. Greetings, Henryk.
