The ViL's poppy

P1020577, originally uploaded by London looks.

On our walk in the cemetery today, the Vol-in-Law said he wanted to check the war memorial to see if his poppy offering was still there.

It is.

It's the single poppy beneath the wreath.

In a way, it's kind of amazing it's still there. It was place on 11 November and the first time he tried to leave it on the memorial it blew away within seconds. He retrieved it, replaced it and there it's stayed for over three months.

But it's not that amazing.

The only reason I'm blogging about it is because he said:

"You should take a picture of my poppy and put in on your blog"

What can I say? I'm a surrendered wife.
