We've been looking for the perfect field of poppies in Gloucestershire. Thanks for all the suggestions. This subject prompted the following email and wonderful photograph from Sonia.

Listening to you Thursday morning talking about the poppy field up by The Air Balloon brought back happy memories of when my late husband, Peter, came home one evening saying he'd seen this field full of poppies and he wanted to create his version of Monet's 'Poppy Field'.

My sister, daughter and I dressed up in long skirts, shawls and hats and off we went.
As I remember it was a lovely evening and the picture I've attached is my favourite out of those he took. I'm on the right.

Sonia...thankyou very much. Keep the stunning summer shots coming...cummings@bbc.co.uk
