A Minster woman has paid her own special tribute to British troops by creating a memorial garden on the grass verge outside her home.
Heather Dysart has planted poppies at her home in Southsea Avenue and decorated it with Union flags to commemorate the First World War.
At the centre is a board with the dates 1914, 1918 and 2014 and a poem.
It was made by her son, an artist and tattooist, from Northern Ireland, who goes by the name Sailor Bill II.
Keen gardener Mrs Dysart, 77, said: “My two grandfathers were in the First World War and the Boer War and I’ve been to the war graves and trenches.
"I started in January when I thought to myself I have to do that front so I’ll grow my poppies.
“Friends have given me packets of seeds for the poppies so I have been very lucky.”
