The Newark Poppies have now Transcended Beauty

I ran to the poppies again today, where a very moving little vignette was taking place.

An elderly couple, certainly well into their 80s if not 90s, had been driven out to the field by their care home, where two staff spent some time taking some photographs of them standing together against the background of incredible blooms. It may well be the last time they get to do something like this, these displays certainly don't take place every year, so full marks to their carers for doing this for them.

A young family were also having a joyous look round, while in the corner a very professional looking photographer had set up his camera and tripod.

Such a simple thing,  and it has brought so much happiness and pride to this town it is unreal.

Without further ado...
