Poppies

The poppies are blooming in Sweetman’s Garden.

I spent over an hour in the Garden yesterday morning and made many photographs.

Old Soldier

Two Remembrance Day poppies have been placed in the stump of a fallen tree at the corner of West Peninsula and Peninsula Road.  They have been there since November.  I photographed them today and treated the photo in different ways.

The first expresses a soft wistful feeling, the second has a more gritty, rough feel.

I suppose each interpretation is appropriate depending on one’s experience.

The poppies remind me how lucky we are.

I haven’t been by Sweetman’s Garden in recent weeks.  Today I visited and found a glorious display of colour.  The lupins are blooming as are the iris and the poppies.

Here is a slideshow of what I found:

It is inconceiveable that only three years ago, North Bay City Council considered selling this property for building lots.
