Lest We Forget

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in France, which helped end the war in Europe. Although that didn't take place until May 1945.

There have been many events around the country, including the main one in France, which the Queen attended.

Here's my contribution. A single red poppy that I found growing in the front garden. We have many yellow ones, but this red one is the only one amongst them.

Sadly, just after I took this photo, there was a big gust of wind and all the petals dropped off.
