Remembrance Sunday

I, Like most most Irish people do not publicly acknowledge this day due to the divided opinions regarding the Irishmen who fought during "The Great War" However as a result of the change in Anglo Irish relations since the successful visit of Queen Elizabeth II to Ireland last year and that it is Sunday 11 November, I choose to publicly remember.

I know the poppies should be red but I haven't any in my stock so I worked on this one taken in my mother's garden in September. It is also her birthday tomorrow :)

Lovely photo and sentiment, Mary. I always think of this day as one to remember ALL those who lost their lives in that most terrible of wars - not just the British soldiers.

Happy Birthday to your Mum!

A great image and a great and honest tribute. I too, like many Irish people have had to struggle with the politics of our strained relationships with our close neighbours, but over a quarter of a million Irish men died in the two great wars - and they were all volunteers, they did what they believed was right, and we reep the benifit today, for that reason i will wear a poppy on Nov 11 with the same pride as I wear my lilly on Easter Sunday.
