One of these beautiful poppies is MINE!

When I saw these pictures, first thing this morning, on my 10.2″ Le Pan pad as I was sipping my first cup of coffee, lying in bed, of course, I felt a sense of elation tempered with sobriety. What a beautiful, evocative sight: both the sea of poppies and my Queen, at 88, still looking Regal and grand. Philip looks good too. Good genes. That one of these is my poppy made it even more special. But, at the same time, EACH one of these poppies represents a British military fatality during WW I. That sea of poppies. That in the end is the message. Remembrance and giving thanks.
