A lovely orange poppy, in the town of Amboise in June 2013.
Next year the world will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of WWI. I can't wait to commemorate the 100th anniversary of it's end on November 11th, 2018!
P.S. As Flanders and northern France are known as the battlefields of the Great War, Belgium is now in the Top 10 of the list of 2014 'holiday' destinations ... An honour, not for our generation, but for those who gave their lives in WWI, whatever their origin.
