Happy Veterans Day! We are so grateful to those who have served our country and today we want to say thank you by creating DIY poppy flowers in their honor. Not only are these flowers colorful and striking, but they symbolize the physical and emotional sacrifice that our armed forces have made during war time. After World War I, the poppy flourished in Europe which scientists have attributed to the French and Belgian soils becoming enriched with lime from the rubble left by the war. From the dirt and mud grew a beautiful red poppy…how beautiful is that?
