Having volunteered to plant and then to remove the poppies I was very moved by the whole effect of them and wanted to buy one for my husband who has visited the battlefields in Belgium to search for fallen relatives. He has planted it in a wild flower meadow where it sometimes stands tall like a soldier or is dwarfed by the growing flowers and thistles which attract so many butterflies and Finches.
