Are these the first Dorset field poppies of 2022?

I was out and about today and chanced upon these Dorset red poppies, scattered amongst the pale yellow rapeseed. It was a beautiful and welcome sight and so early in the red poppy season too.

I really hope to see a lot more Dorset red poppy fields this year, as 2021 wasn’t too good for them.
