A Fitting Photograph

The prompt this week over at
is texture.

On Sunday, I visited my Godparents where I photographed
this lonely but beautifully textured poppy in their back garden.

Such a fitting photograph for this week as we remember and show gratitude
to all those brave men who gave their lives
in WW1 one hundred years ago, the Normandy Landings 70 years ago 
and not forgetting those men and women lost in more recent conflicts.

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them".

This week I am also grateful to lovely friends who took me out for a lovely lunch on Wednesday,
to family and friends for all the lovely cards and gifts I received for my birthday,
for all the birthday wishes on Facebook,
for two hours of complete massage bliss,
for finally being up to date,
for my wonderful parents and my fabulous daughter for always thinking outside the box and making me smile,
and most of all for just being here.
Have a great week and if you feel like sharing your positive, why not head over to
Rockin Your World Friday
and share with Virginia.
