So pleased that at the beginning of the week my poppy came from The Tower of London, and even more pleased it was in one piece, well it was dismantled as it seems they took it out the ground and put it straight in a box, rusty stalk and all, but after hearing tales of poppy's arriving broken I breathed a sigh of relief.
It’s still sitting in the box and I’m torn between keeping it in the box and there fore safe, (as box’s go its very nice) or assembling it to display somewhere. Because what’s the point if no one can see it?
I was surprised how crudely made the poppy head is, it is complete with the finger marks of the person who made it. Kind of charming really.
Mr D was surprised, he didn’t know I had ordered one way back in August, just goes to show I can still keep a secret.
