The red poppies on Monte Cassino
Voice of the Prokonsul: The Red Poppies on Monte Cassino
Poppies by an old wall hanging on
Late Devonian poppies
Our Willow and her poppy.
I took these today, of a decorated WW2 Pillbox, close to Benson Village, Oxon. The airfield not too-far behind. Vera Lynn, two Tommies and a Spitfire.
Don't know why, every time I try to post, multiples of the same photograph come-out ? I posted Seven different one's !
This link may work in some areas ? If so, you'll need to scroll-down about 10 News sections. Gets further away each day...
Our Grand daughter in the play area aged 14months just the crochet poppy in case of photo censorship.
Current letterbox trend
In pictures: Poppy displays across southern England
I was in France last week and I sought out the Church in Méligny-le-Grand, inside was a memorial to the crew of a Lancaster that crashed just outside the village . The crash was documented in a book on Lancasters by John Nichol unfortunately the Church was locked so I left the wreath outside so glad I found it don’t think many people get to it it’s well off the beaten track
Bit late I know but this one at Appledore in Devon always brings a lump to my throat.
Dont want to make you sad but perhaps this might be a place to mention my granddaughter in the post #108
I know there are rules about placing pictures of children but on Friday she was rushed into hospital with a badly swollen face thought to be caused by an ear infection.
On Friday night my daughter was told that her baby of fifteen months has leukaemia. They are shut away in hospital due to Covid. Winnie is in Intensive Care.
We cant see them and have to await results of tests to find out what her future may hold.
Could I post a photo of her in all her glory, showing her new teeth, wearing her poppy with pride.
My heart bleeds for you. Sadly I can imagine what you are going through so I hope tests are good for you all. Sincere best wishes. xx
