The Ceramic Poppies have arrived…
& they’re so beautiful!
The 5 ceramic poppies – bought in honour of the 5 soldiers who enlisted from Castle Coop and who were killed in WW1 – have arrived safely.
Here they all are:
Just as each soldier was an individual so each of the ceramic poppies is different from all the others.
I can’t get my head round holding these poppies here in Castle Coop, knowing that they were part of that incredible display at the Tower of London. It is amazing to think that those poor 5 soldiers who were killed, all have their own poppies now, right here in the village they once lived in…
What a thrill!
Yours feeling rather awestruck,
