Poppy Tragedy


I got back from my foray to Dancing Oaks Nursery to find an e-mail from our neighbor SEH that said someone had driven by in the middle of the night and pulled up and destroyed the poppy patch in their garden. No one saw the perpetrators or reported hearing anything out of the ordinary, though Gabe, their alert Australian Shepherd, had gone ballistic around 11:30 that night.

In her wisdom the next day, however, SEH chose to do some retail therapy and ordered a slew of new poppies that she'll plant inside the fence this time. And we'll all take turns at guard duty till the seeds get harvested!

Well, at least we got to see the poppies in person before this sad event.

They were beautiful. But the Poppy Patch Restoration Project is underway. The Patch will live again!
