I hope you had a lovely weekend. I thought I’d start the week off with a burst of colour in the form of this field of poppies installation by Jannick Deslauriers.
Isn’t it just stunning? Using translucent fabric, Montreal based Jannick has created such delicate and almost ethereal poppies. I adore her take on this, one of my favourite flowers. To see more of her work, please do visit Jannick’s website.
Here in the UK, it’ll soon be Remembrance Sunday. So please don’t forget to start looking out for The Royal British Legion (RBL) poppies, which should be on sale soon. And if you’re looking for a very special poppy, you may like to buy this wonderful brooch below, as worn by the Duchess of Cambridge last year. Made by jewellery brand Buckley London, it’s called The Buckley Sparkle Poppy. It comes in two sizes and at least 30% of its retail price goes to The Royal British Legion. As well as via the Buckley website, it’ll also be available from The RBL’s online Poppy Shop, QVC and Marks & Spencer.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s blog post and do take care if you’re in the UK and are out and about in the storm which has been forecast for this morning.
