Bonfire Night - 05 November
Explosions of bright colours, much like a spring bloom, make your display of colours by visiting your closest garden centre and building a flower array to behold. If you want to celebrate this Bonfire Night in a different way then embracing the joys of gardening can certainly provide all the eye-popping colours you need to put on a show of your own. 🎇
Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday - 11/13 November
A time to reflect on the sacrifice of so many people for our freedom. Poppies are the traditional symbol of remembrance on this most solemn day. Poppies flourished in the brutally churned up soil of World War One and became a regular sight for soldiers of the time. Other colours of Poppy are used to symbolise other facets such as a purple Poppy for animals lost in conflict, but the infamous red Poppy is the most iconic of all of them. 🥀
