Good morning team Poppy …
It’s a huge day at 5000 Poppies today … this afternoon, we will be installing some 200,000 poppies at Melbourne’s iconic Shrine of Remembrance in a very moving tribute of love, honour and respect for our servicemen and women, past and present, their families and their communities.
This is what our lovely little community project is all about.
So we are feeling excited and privileged to be at the Shrine with all of your beautiful poppies … alongside the Menin Gate Buglers to commemorate the 99th anniversary of the end of WWI. What a spectacular tribute it will make.
The poppies will be at the Shrine until Sunday afternoon 12 November. Hope you get a chance to come down and see us.
Thank you team for everything your doing to make this possible.
I am proud to be part of this wonderful team.
Respectfully yours Eyvonne
Thank you sos much Eyvonne,
It’s because of the amazing contributions from the extended 5000 Poppies team that we have been able to do this project in the first place, so thank you for your contribution.
Wow How great they look. Very well done to all Knitters and the TEAM. Marlene Hogan Queensland.

Thank you Marlene,
It has definitely been a team effort, and I am grateful for each and every contribution.
That is great xxx
Thank you Phyllis.
I think everyone has done a wonderful job,will you be continuing the displays around Australia, we are in Queensland would love to see one in Brisbane.
Thank you … it has certainly been an epic journey.
Canberra 2018 is expected to be our final installation … although I expect that there will be many installations inspired by 5000 Poppies in years to come in many places. You could start one locally, as many others have already if you wish!
