Yet again I have to thank my new friend, Craigie, in Halifax, Yorkshire, for bringing this to my attention on Facebook. Thank you, again, Craigie. I have come to realize that she is even MORE of a ‘red poppy’ devotee than I — and that takes some doing.

St John’s, Slimbridge is in Gloucestershire, England. All of England is beautiful, Gloucestershire one of the nicest, most verdant parts.

Amazingly clever. Bravo. So evocative and spot on. I initially thought they were made out of clear plastic. I was wrong. Wire mesh. How brilliant.

And it works so, so well. I am humbled.

When I first saw the pictures it reminded me of the ‘Korean War Memorial’ in Washington, D.C. But, on reflection they are very different. I think the Slimbridge ghosts are so realistic. Wow.

I really am in awe.

Reflect, Remember & Revere.
