Tower Poppies

Back in October, we went to the Tower of London to see the poppies:

Luckily, my son Chris was a bit more proactive and had already ordered one (he didn’t tell us) and presented it to us on Christmas Day…

I understand that they’re not frost-proof so it currently lives in an orchid pot in the kitchen – looking for a more permanent solution 🙂

Shown on the kitchen floor at the moment so needs a little more “architectural” work.

More soon…
