Remembrance Day

It is Remembrance  Day  here in the UK.
Folk will stop what they are doing at 11 a.m. and keep a two minute silence.

Time to reflect and remember 
the  men and  women from  all the countries of our world.
Who, throughout the years past and present ,
served their countries
and  gave  their lives
for the freedom and safety of others..


  1. Beautiful image and sentiment Yvonnd

  2. It's good to remember those who served and gave their lives for our freedom. Hugs, Valerie

  3. I had a little walk through your latest blogposts and you gave me inspiration by your many colourful creations and the many styles and items I saw in the posts. Always nice to make a blogwalk like this....ending at the lovely poppy card...or is it it's difficult in english but I am sure you will understand.I love the beautiful red color from the flower and the sentiment on your card. Always good to remember...some things may never be forgotten.
    Have a lovely Plony

  4. Absolutely gorgeous! It's not even 10 am here, but I will stop at 11 and remember as I always do. I will even wear a watch because Sally and I are headed to the zoo. That way I will know, unless there is some announcement.

  5. That is a lovely thought- Stopping for 2 minutes to think about peace. I wish we did that here in the US. Your piece is gorgeous too. That poppy is fantastic! Hugs-Erika

  13. This is really lovely, Yvonne. I like the soft greens setting off the red of the poppy.
    We were in a library at 11 o'clock and they sounded a loud hand-bell.
