    Yes it was but at the same time so sad when you realize that every poppy represents a young life

  4. Wonderful photos, such a striking effect. I’ve bought one of the poppies, looking forward to having it in the garden once the ‘show’ is over.

  5. This is a fabulous idea. My great grandfather’s younger brother died 12 November 1914 and is remembered on the Menin Gate. We had an emotional visit there a few years ago – actually seeing something like this really brings home the vast numbers of lives lost ….

      Thank you – I am so sorry that you are unable to see the photos – try clicking on them – if they are too big click again and they will become an acceptable size – hope you can do this

  7. Oohh..lovely colors Diana! Stunning view!

  8. So impressive! Armistice Day is not a public holiday in Finland, though the ending of WW1 is important for as well: we got our independence from Russia as a consequence of the war.
