A weeping window of poppies is on display at Sorbie Tower near Wigtown.
The display has been organised by tower warden Steve Hanna, with all proceeds going to the Poppy Scotland Appeal.
Visitors to the tower are able to buy a hand-knitted poppy and add it to the hundreds of others which are attached to the walls and windows.
The crocheted and knitted poppies have come from the Women's Institute and Cumbrian Museum, and are available to buy at the tower.
The poppies will be sent to their owners after the display comes down, following Remembrance Sunday.
The tower will be open to visitors wishing to purchase poppies on Sunday 5th November, Saturday 11th November and Sunday 12th November.
