Lest we Forget.
This year we grew the Flanders red poppy seeds that we brought back from the Capital War Memorial last year.
These are a couple of pics of our first poppy from the plants that grew.
There has been a consistent bloom of poppies for months.
Brother Bear even brought some in for news. Apparently he had a great deal to say, his friends were quite enthralled, so I am told.
Today we picked Poppies in the pouring rain, along with some rosemary. We tied them with twine and the kiddos each laid a posy on our local war memorial.
Do you pause to remember on Remembrance day?
Do you bake or make something special?
