|FAMILY| seed 'bombing' for the centenary poppy campaign

As one of our spring staycation activities, I wanted us to sow some seeds as a family for the British Legion's centenary poppy campaign.

We purchased our poppies from B&Q at £2 each, £1 from each pack going towards the British Legion.    

One of the roads leading out of our village is a bloom with daffodils at this time of year, this all started with one person planting some daffs years ago and has spread from there, I decided that I wanted to plant our poppies on the side of the road, I was going to create 'real' seed bombs but after reading the instructions which said that the soil really needs to be tilled and loosened I thought I was pushing my luck by doing a seed bomb!

So I decided we'd just park the car up and sprinkle the seeds, hoping that a few will come up a little later in the year and remind us of the 100th year anniversary of the start of WW1.

I hope that T will remember this in years to come if we are fortunate enough for the seeds to take and come up and I'll be really chuffed if they come up year after year.  I'm now going to go back to B&Q and get some more to plant in the garden 'properly'.

If our poppies come up I'll do a follow-up post showing how lovely they look.

Have a fabulous week in the run-up to a lovely long Easter weekend Lx.
