Poppies in Perth

When walking through Cathedral Place in Perth on Remembrance Day we discovered a 'field' of knitted and crocheted poppies poppies behind St George's Cathedral. Additional poppies were added to the display at the Remembrance Day service held later in the morning. A total of 7,200 poppies were used in the final display.
