Field Poppies, the Memorial Flower

Sometimes when we are going full blast ahead and not paying a bit of attention to anything around us, something stunning catches our eyes and an old truth simply slaps us right in the face. It happened to me when I saw the poppies.

I don't know if this pops up as the random idea for everyone today, or just me, but it makes me think of Sharon, the only person I know on this site to have passed away. She seemed like such a sweet soul, sharing her ideas and her artwork with us.

In reading her article about memories, she talks about her Aunt Bett and her Uncle Bill.... Of which I have both, too. She also talked about daylilies (my passion), poppies (something I grow and love). It created a little bit of a feeling of kinship.
