Flowers on the Traffic Island of Potsdamer Straße.
I had actually waded out to the traffic island to take a picture of a favorite “Imbiss” (food stand/snack bar), and there they were hiding in the dry grass.
Scarcely visible from the sidewalk, the plants had seeded themselves from last years plantings, and were stunted by poor soil conditions and lack of moisture. But for the red poppy, a native, they had all shrunk to a height of 15-20 cm.
