ANZAC Day


Kia ora

Friday, 25 April 2008, is ANZAC Day across New Zealand and Australia. The ANZACs, the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, are celebrated on ANZAC Day, the anniversary of the landing of the Australian and New Zealand troops at Gallipoli, during World War One, and is observed as a day of commemoration for those New Zealanders who died during the campaign in 1915, and, today, includes the many returned servicemen and women from then and subsequent wars as well as those who died.

The photograph used here is one of a red Flanders poppy that grew in my garden, last year. I managed to get a photograph before all those lovely petals were lost. The poppy seed head was gathered on a trip to Alexandra in Central Otago a few years ago and each year since, many more poppies have grown in the tub.

Our card site has some lovely cards for ANZAC Day as well as many cards for any occasion.

Thanks for popping in to see my blog. Please leave a note in my guestbook if you have time.
