I never knew about white poppies . . .

Yellow poppies and orange poppies – sure – but

White Poppies?

One day my sweetheart, George and I were

coming home from Nogales when he spotted

White Poppies

at the airport. We pulled over and 

George collected seeds.

We planted the seeds in the yard and 

one year later there was

‘1’ White Poppy

in the middle of the driveway.

We smiled with delight.

George is gone now and there are

White Poppies

In my yard every year and I am seeing some

around town.

Maybe you already knew about

White Poppies,

But I like to think my sweetie left
