{ A Snapshot } Flanders Fields

Dave and I have taken to having a relaxing stroll after dinner in the subdued light of the early evening. We're quite lucky to live in the countryside and so have a variety of routes to choose from - the reservoir, along fields, the bridleway to the next village etc. Today we chose to walk along the field to the reservoir and were pleasantly surprised to meet a field of poppies all smiling up at us. This has to be one of my favourite sights.

I couldn't help but think of Flanders Fields...

"In Flanders Fields the poppies blow, between the crosses row on row 
 That mark our place; and in the sky, the larks still bravely singing, fly..."

Love and lacery,
