A spectacular show of 250,000 Hand Made POPPIES have been laid ahead of Anzac Day Dawn service in Federation Square in MELBOURNE in honour of all our Fallen Soldiers as part of a project.

Melbourne artists Lynn Berry and Margaret Knight started the project, called 5,000 Poppies, two years ago with a simple call-out, asking for people to create crocheted, knitted, felted or sewn poppies.

“This project started its life as a very small personal project to make 120… yes that’s 120 poppies as a tribute from Marg and I to our fathers who both fought in WWII,” Berry wrote on the project’s blog. It ballooned to 5,000, by the end of 2014 it hit more than 100,000, and now stands at a count of 250,000.

This is a TRUE SHOW of the spirit of all our Patriots in our country. Its a honour to be an AUSTRALIAN!

“Lest We Forget”

Outstanding job to all those involved and that have spent obvious hours on end to create such a beautiful show of honour to all our fallen soldiers and to those that are still currently seriving our nation for our rights and freedom.
