May 1915 Canadian Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae wrote . .
“In Flanders fields the poppies blow, between the crosses, row on row. . "
The poppies grow between rows of white crosses and here in Canada the poppy has become a symbol of remembrance for the fallen soldiers who have sacrificed their lives that we might have freedom.
The poppies I have growing in my pots are from seeds brought back from Flanders Fields by a friend.
They bloom in Summer and when they do. . .
I think about the rows of crosses they have originated from.
