Day 112 22 April – poppies

Botany town centre has two small fields of poppies in remembrance of fallen New Zealand soldiers and those brave souls who had returned home.


The use of the red poppy – the Flanders’ Poppy – as a symbol of remembrance derives from the fact that the poppy was the first plant to re-emerge from the churned up soil of soldiers’ graves during the First World War.

Lest we forget.
