Art and Poppies on Memorial Day

Before I get to the art part of this post, I wanted to say thank you to all of the people who have served or currently serve my country.  Words can not describe how much you are appreciated.

I remember the little poppies that were given out at Memorial Day Parades, when I was a kid.  I always loved them and saved the sweet little flowers. I knew what they stood for, but being a typical little girl, I liked that they were flowers too.

Well, many years later, I still think of the poppies for remembrance at Memorial Day.  And I found this gorgeous light weight felted coat on Etsy, with beautiful poppies.  It's called "Dreaming of Summer".
