Apparently in the war in Flanders(France) the shells and bombs caused the ground to be disturbed and that's what triggered poppies to grow, thats why in England poppies are sold to raise money for injured soldiers every year for Remembrance Day.
My son bought me a Buckley broach that's a lovely poppy, I only get to wear it for a short time every year but it's really pretty.
