So... Anzac day is on the horizon in just a few weeks and I wanted to create something for this.
Anzac Fire Pits have been around for ages and they pretty much all depict the same thing to be honest....
SO I wanted to create something a little different... more subtle and something that is still relevant and stunning all year round without necessarily being tied to one day.
To give a bit of background here, we come from a military background. The town we moved from (Plymouth) was built around the forces - hubby was in the navy for 13 years and did his fair share of long deployments.
I worked in the dockyard for some years as a photographer for the military. Some days I worked on war ships and other days in nuclear reactor compartments on submarines - it was a unusual and exciting job!
Basically, everyone we knew, friends of family, were somehow connected to the dockyard.
SO this pit is just poppies.
As a note, my youngest daughter is also called Poppy :)
