Tall Poppy Syndrome

P1030088There’s a riot of red along the fields over the river on the far side of the allotments – tall poppies have risen above the crops and in one place seem to sway and swirl like a carpet of remembrance all the way to Edge Hill.

Driving into the village from Radway there’s one brief moment when the view ahead appears to be blocked by a giant red road sign – the illusion only lasts three or four seconds but the hedges then make it impossible to locate this particular blaze of colour.

Which Prime Minister once declared “Let your poppies grow tall?” ( Answer tomorrow!)
