The Poppies are back!!!!

This little quote from Keats

catches the gayiety of the flower

as it dances in the breeze

and yet the Poppy, in our culture,

is so remindful of

grief, and sorrow and loss,

so much the result of

 bravery, and valour.

Perhaps that's why we love them so.

When we visited Charles' brother's graves in France

outside the cemetery the poppies

grew wild in the meadows.

Here in our garden

they grew amongst the flax and the iris

and were a constant reminder

of the beauty that we who lived

have been privileged to wonder at.

Praise what comes!!!!
