Poppies


We recently went to Normandy, to visit the sites, history, cemeteries and memorials from Operation Overlord, D-Day. Poppies are of course associated with the battlefields of the First World War, but every time we saw them in Normandy, they seemed fitting also.

When we got home, what did we see in Mrs Soggy's flower border, but our own poppies in flower, here they are for you to enjoy too.

Thank you!

I gathered some seed from the poppies last year for a friend, they didn't germinate for her, but I have got about 10 seedlings happily growing away - not sure your climate would suit them though.
