    As it's near that time of year I thought we could share photos we've taken of poppies.
    :poppy:
    I'll start off with these two I took in the France back in May.

    Back in 1992 my wife & I were visiting Monet's house at Giverny in France.

    On the way back to Paris we spotted this field of poppies, an unbelievable slash of red and we just had to take a picture.

    Not stricty poppies in the field.
    Took this at the Tower Hill Memorial last week, very humbling, thought it was apt for this thread. If i'm wrong, I'm wrong!
