Happy Memorial Day! 

When I was in London a few years ago, I saw red poppies everywhere and learned that they bloomed in the fields of some of the worst battles of World War I, and became a symbol for the blood shed there.

I picked up some poppies in honor of Memorial Day and found this excerpt from a poem, which I love…

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.

“We Shall Keep the Faith” -Moina Michael

I hope you and yours have a nice Memorial Day. ❤️
