Field of Poppies Floral Notecard

$6.00Price

This watercolor of Scarlet poppies is printed from an original watercolor painting by Kelly Barone.

Red poppies are now seen as a joyous icon as well as being an icon of remembrance. Bright red poppies are fashionable and are popping up all over.The poppy of wartime remembrance is Papaver rhoeas, the red-flowered corn poppy. In Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand, artificial poppies (plastic in Canada, paper in the UK, Australia, South Africa, Malta and New Zealand) are worn to commemorate those who died in war. This form of commemoration is associated with Remembrance Day, which falls on November 11. In Canada, Australia and the UK, poppies are often worn from the beginning of November through to the 11th, or Remembrance Sunday if that falls on a later date. In New Zealand and Australia, soldiers are also commemorated on ANZAC day (April 25), although the poppy is still commonly worn around Remembrance Day. Wearing of poppies has been a custom since 1924 in the United States.
