Poppies

We came home today and the first thing we noticed was that every lamp post in the village has a poppy on it. One of the bus shelters in the middle of the village has a painting of a soldier for Remembrance Day. I will try to get a picture to post tomorrow.
Great shot of a cute looking poppy.

I go to a Craft Club once a week and we’ve knitted a lot of poppies to decorate the war memorial in the village. Most of the villages around here are doing something similar.

@mave I’m sure there’ll be lots of interesting poppy photos on 365 in November. I shall look forward to seeing them. It’s quite funny isn’t it to think of us all knitting poppies 😁

@susiemc We have been knitting and crocheting poppies for the past two years at least. I wonder where they are all going! I know some have been made into wreaths.
