|Lest We Forget|
The poppy is key in this remembrance, we wear them around this time of year to show we remember, to show respect and to give us hope.
We don't usually have live poppies this time of year, the frost kills them off before now. But this year it's been rather mild and we have poppies growing in our garden. In the above photo are some of those poppies growing in our garden this Remembrance Sunday morning. I photographed them this morning.
This year there is a special installation of poppies around The Tower of London for Remembrance Day. Remembrance Day is the 11th of November. In observance every year there is a two minute silence at 11am on the 11th day of November (11th month).
I was recently in London working near the Tower of London and I was lucky to get to see the Poppy installation. I could see it from my hotel room actually. Below are some photos I took on 22nd & 23rd of October 2014.
