I’m amazed at the creative displays of handmade poppies we’re seeing. I imagine, though, that very few of them were made by men, which makes me wonder about the informal ways for men to contribute to the occasion in their communities, since the dead being commemorated were so predominantly men. I find the whole thing curious - not without a touch of envy, because the poppy making must have been such fun - but there is something here that escapes me.
Btw, is the same thing happening in France with cornflowers?
