Today we commemorate our war dead in New Zealand. We are still in full isolation so the traditional Dawn Service was replaced by people standing in their driveways at 6am. So my animals – Johnny Ratten, Badger, Penguin with the dubious name and Emmaline – are doing that all day today.
The poppies are our symbol of Anzac Day, they grew in Flanders fields in WW1. ANZAC is an acronym for Australia and New Zealand Armoured Corps.
In the gallery: an updated collection of the old cartoon-style pieces, sculptures and paintings, that I have been putting outside in my drive since lock-down started (mid Autumn burst of fine weather lately has been great) – with cones at the start of the drive, cartoon animals like social distance.
Take care out there
