  1. The crinkly look of this flower reminds me of a skirt.

    Have a great week.

  2. I love the colours and texture in this one. For years I've meant to go over to see the memorials and cemeteries in France and Belgium while the poppies are blooming; you've got me thinking again about just *doing* it, and booking that trip.
    Peace, Sandy--thanks for a beautiful post!

  14. I saw some poppies the other day and meant to take some photos but something distracted me and I crossed the street and forgot about them. I will always remember the poppies we sold for the VA as a child.

    Now I have to go look up the field of poppies poem. . . I think it was so appropriate that our President was in France for V day.

  18. A beautiful flower. The poppy is the sign of our Remembrance Day, and in November millions of Brits pay to wear a mock one on their lapel to support the veterans and remember.
