Today is definitely a day to honor the fallen. Too many people have died so we can have the life we have. That includes policemen and firemen. To all of those who are serving now, I salute you and thank you. Aren't poppies the flowers the British use for remembrance?
I love the colors you have used for these flowers - absolutely beautiful!
