Poppies in the Park on Display

All loaded up and ready to go

It was a lovely sunny day for the installation of Poppies in the Park in Rowntree Park, York.  A lot of the hard work had already been done creating the big, giant and gigantic poppies so the morning was just spent turning the finger knitting into text.

Reinforcements arrived in the afternoon and we got the poppies up ...

Thanks to everyone who took part - it looks great and wouldn't have been possible without you!  Special thanks go to Jose for her 300 poppies and to Helen, Kate & Lily who came to my rescue and attached loads of poppies earlier this week.  Thanks to Deborah too, who has worked with me on this project and helped make it possible.

Poppies in the Park has been sponsored by the Friends of Rowntree Park, Boyes & Duttons for Buttons.
