Allsorts - poppies

This week at Allsorts Susan has set the theme to Poppies/Remembrence since it's Remembrence Day on Nov 11. This is not celebrated in Sweden but in many other countries. The day celebrates the end of World War I and the poppies are a symbol for the blood spilled on the battlefield (and the fact that lots of poppies grew on the battlefield in Flanders). I found the poppy image as a freebie here.
