Anzac Day–Lest we Forget

The red poppy is the international symbol of wartime remembrance as well as the symbol of Anzac Day here in New Zealand.  We purchased this beautiful hand crafted pottery poppy in remembrance of Anzac Day and all who lost their lives in conflicts to ensure our peace and freedom.


Our beautiful red poppy was made by Carolyn Hodgson, using traditional methods to hand sculpt the flower and lives in our garden at home.

The American Legion usually distributes handmade tissue poppies to shoppers for a small donation. I've been getting one for years. I can't remember seeing the Legionaries last year.
