Embellished Military Jacket: Rabbit and The Raven (IG @rabbitandtheraven)
On our recent trip to The Black Sea, I took along my latest embellished military jacket in the hope of finding a serious poppy bloom as a background to the listing shots. As you can see from the images, the bloom we found completely exceeded my wildest dreams...
And, as with the best things in life, it was fate that led us to this amazing find - we actually took a wrong turn on our trip home, which meant we missed the freeway and ended up on a somewhat slower route. Just before we managed to rejoin the freeway and get back on track, Milan and I spotted a blazing red extensive patch on the horizon. We looked at each other. No, it couldn't be.
When we finally reached the bloom, it was incredible. My eyes and mind were full of red. Purple flowers grew intermittently among the poppies, resulting in a stunning colour combination that only our marvellous mother nature could have selected.
