November – The Gallery

Sticky Fingers has set us a challenge this week – describe November in one photograph for The Gallery.

I’m picking this photograph for a number of reasons.


This photo was taken on Rembrance Sunday this year at the Cenotaph.

Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day have always been a part of my life.  As a child, I was in parades, as an adult I remember family who fought in two world wars – some surviving, some not.

My Dad’s birthday is on 12th November and as a child I always remembered seeing poppies everywhere we went around his birthday.  It’s stuck.  I see poppies for sale I think of Dad, I see poppies in a field, I think of Dad’s birthday to come in November.

Poppies to me, symbolise November, a time for remembering, a time for being grateful for what we have. We should have celebrated a 2nd birthday on Armistice Day, so poppies in November, always make me think of our missing link.  Our poppy in the clouds.


About Over 40 and a Mum to One

A Mum with a 9 year old son, enjoying life and having fun as my son travels through school life. We love to get outdoors whenever possible and make the most of the world around us. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.
