They were biodegradable — an paper poppies usually are. {Smile}.

Another outstanding tribute. I am so PROUD and happy. We do this with so much panache.

Wanted to share with YOU in case you hadn’t seen this. I saw this first thing this morning in the ‘Daily Mail‘.

For the 3rd time, The Queen, now 93, watched from a balcony and let two generations of her male progeny lay the wreaths. This year, with time, alas, ticking away, she was more emotional than her usual calm, composed, regal self. She brushed away some tears. That was poignant. That she no longer lays the wreath herself is perfectly fine. We all understand and appreciate. She has done her duty — plenty.

This was her 68th Remembrance Sunday. Wow. See b&w image below when she attended with her dad, before she was queen.





For those unfamiliar with this holiday & tradition
please refer to my EARLIER post.
Thank YOU.
