in remembrance

painting by Elizabeth Peyton
 A simple bunch of poppies to serve as a remembrance for those who served our country and for all the lives lost for our freedom.
 What a beautiful symbol to salute a soldier.  Bold, brave and beautiful.
 In Gustav Klimt’s painting "A Field of Poppies" (1907), the fruiting trees and the meadow of wildflowers are a metaphor for rebirth and regeneration. After World War I, poppy fields came to symbolize the loss of life.

Thank-you to each and every veteran as we take time to honor you and to celebrate all the hero's everywhere.
