Friday’s Florals: Poppy Day

In Flanders Field (800x600)


RSA volunteers exchange distinctive red poppies for a donation to the RSA Poppy Day appeal in support of veterans as well as ex-service people and their families in need.

The poppy reminds us of sacrifices made – both past and present. Poppies were the first flowers that grew in the battlefields of Flanders in Belgium during World War One and are a symbol of remembrance and hope.

Poppy Day has been a part of the New Zealand calendar since 1922, making it one of the oldest nationwide appeals.

Poppy Day is usually held each year on the Friday before Anzac Day. Poppy Day 2015 will be held on Friday 17 April.

Thanks for visiting.

Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Phone Numbers


Good morning from a frosty Hastings day.

This week Cee at Cee’s Photography  has asked for photos of numbers.  What photo to use.  I was using the phone and saw all the numbers on it – so I just took a photo of it and edited it in Photoshop.
