Yes, I know it’s not an original expression (Google it), but look at this photo. To commemorate the 1914-18 War the Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh, sowed a poppy garden. Today, 4th October, I photographed it (for personal reasons I have a love of blue cornflowers, one of the flowers planted with the poppies). At this time of year the poppies have died, of course. There are not 18 million dead poppies here (click on the image). But spot the flower I fell in love with today. I’m sure I don’t have to explain why. .
