Poppies (or was that puppies??)

Yesterday mummy went to see the poppies at the Tower of London. I thought she said puppies and got really excited. I thought I was getting a baby brother or sister and my tail started to wag big time. But no, it was just poppies. Not quite as exciting.

I’m sure most of you have heard about the poppies at the Tower, but if you want to find out more, you can read about them here: http://poppies.hrp.org.uk/

Here are a few photos she took:

Mummy said it was truly an impressive site and if you live in the UK and have the opportunity to see them in the flesh (or should that be petal??) then definitely stop by, it’s a site worth seeing.

And for those of you hoping to see some puppies (like me!) this is for you:
