“Red as a poppy…”

Good morning everyone Today is 11/11, Remembrance day. It is the day to remember all those who died in the line of duty. This year in the UK, Hull is the city of culture. One project was the ‘weeping window’ in the square which I visited a while ago; an abundance of poppies tumbling delicately…
