Good Evening, there is two reasons today for choosing poppies for today's header. First it is Remembrance Weekend and Stuart new painting. First of all Jeannette's entry today reminded me of my late Uncle Will who fought with the Scots Guards in WW1. He was severely wounded at Ypres, was left for dead and was not found till later when the medics were checking. He lived on with his injuries till he was in his eighties although he did lose both his legs. I will always remember him as a very gentle old man who stayed with my Mum and Dad and played with our son for hours, and smoked Woodbine.
Stuart started a painting of a of meadow of poppies (not the one above) a few weeks ago at his class. They had a week off last week for the big draw and he finished it today. Normally I love Stuart's work but this painting is awful he says the the same thing. It was an exercise for his teacher and they were doing it a bit at a time being shown another bit then doing that, nobody seem to like this but like children everybody did what they were told. Hopefully next week everything will be back to normal and I will be admiring hubbies paintings again.I think that's about it for tonight will go and look for a nice picture for you. Love Joan.
I took this picture from The Isle of Skye Golf Club looking North.
