I seldom do cards of flowers. But I could not resist the beauty of Just Inklined's image of a poppy. At the time, my poppies were not blooming. But since I colored this card, my poppies are in full bloom, at least they were until we had a horrible, intense thunderstorm that damaged them and knocked out the electricity for 16 hours. Here is a picture I took a couple hours before the storm.

  7. Love the poppy in your garden and the card, too! I was reading about the history of Memorial Day and saw that the poppy is linked to Memorial Day because of a poem so your card is VERY appropriate for the occasion. Here's the poem:

    "In 1915, inspired by the poem "In Flanders Fields," Moina Michael replied with her own poem:

    We cherish too, the Poppy red
    That grows on fields where valor led,
    It seems to signal to the skies
    That blood of heroes never dies."

    Here's the link to Memorial Day History where I found it:
