an interesting piece which many of you may know, but I would like to share it.

I am gonna grow a patch of red poppies hopefully next year. I love to see them they're so beautiful :)
the most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, loving concern.

Thank you, I knew about the red poppy's history but not about the white ones.
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age
