We Remember

A day to remember.
These poppies grew in my Newfoundland garden. They originally came from my mother's garden. Poppies and Forget-Me-Nots (those tiny blue flowers in the lower right of the poppy) were among the flowers she planted.

Her brother, Charlie Emberley, served in WWll and survived. These are for him and for all of those who fought in wars to keep us free.


A Forget-Me-Not Shimmer was created at the request of The Rooms in St. John's, NL to commemorate the Battle of Beaumont Hammel, July 1, 1916.

  1. Beautiful poppies - and forget-me-nots too. DH, who took care of our gardens, used to get so upset with them because they spread all over everywhere, but I loved them. Mostly, no doubt, because they are blue. My dad was fortunate in not having to go to the war because he was the only son on a farm and it was the norm for them to stay home and grow the food to support the war effort. DH's dad was left in charge of an all-woman munitions factory here.
