Flowers for memories.

A lovely wild poppy card from Valerie. These poppies hold a special place in the hearts of Australians. We wear them in remembrance of the soldiers killed in all of the wars. The custom dates from the armistice of World War 1 because many of our soldiers perished in Flanders where these poppies grow wild in the field.
A beautiful card and very special.
Thanak you Valerie.

  1. Coucou Carole! this etegami is not from Valerie, but from Marion! (Tricot rayé)
    I didn't know this story about poppys in Australia. It's sad! Make me remeber a poem from Arthur Rimbaud. "Le dormeur du val"
