poppies - take your pick!

Today's all about the poppies - Flanders rather than mum's beautiful Californian poppies out in full bloom on the weekend.  I'm heading to our local community garden to pot up Flanders poppy seedlings to be replanted in newly constructed council garden beds.  These new planting areas have been made for our Poppies for Remembrance project to commemorate our Victoria Cross winners and former service personnel - hopefully they will be out in full bloom in November for Remembrance Day.  Meanwhile at home I have a lovely collection of donated knitted and crocheted poppies just waiting to be made into bunting - with only just over seven weeks to go, it's time to get crafting!
