For as long as I can remember…

…the Flanders Poppy has been a symbol of

the freedom won in two World Wars.

I had heard of fields being covered in blood red poppies,

but had been a bit of a doubting Thomas.

LIke Thomas, my doubts were allayed

upon my 2017 visit to the

Western Front Battlefields,

where, with my own eyes, I was able to

see (and photograph) poppies growing wild

on World War I Battlefields.

Hadn’t thought of this as a vista

until Google suggested it.
