Red Poppies for Tea

Red poppies on November 11 to remember those who died in the past wars and to honour the living members of the armed forces.
A timely day to use my red poppy teacup from Gracie china.
A solemn tea as we give thanks for the brave men and women that fought to give Canada the freedom we take for granted.
Linking with these tea gatherings:

  1. A beautiful tribute is so many ways: the thought, the flowers, the tea service and the men whom you honored.

  7. What a lovely way to honour the fallen and all who serve our country. Tomorrow, I will be attending a Remembrance Day service which will also commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War I.

  8. Hi Ruth ... How lucky you are to have a poppy tea set... They are not very common but they are oh so beautiful... I love poppies and try in vain to grow the giant red ones and blue himalayans but alas, only the california poppies pop up for me ...so it's a real treat to view their brilliance on your lovely china...thanks for sharing ...Hugs

  11. Judith, what a beautifully done tea today! Love your poppies and teacup. The little plate with the cardinal is adorable. But the photo of our two slain soldiers is very touching. It will be a moving service in Ottawa today. Thank you for sharing your lovely tribute with us.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  16. Judith, such a beautifully illustrated tribute! As I wrote in my post we are using our new Surface on this trip and it occurred to me that none of my photos to use in such a tribute are on this machine (I know, I should learn how to use 'the cloud' for storage) but since I can't post anything appropriate, you have made my day!
