2020 became the Year of the Poppy at my outdoor gallery. This first batch of brilliant red poppies was transplanted into a hollowed out tree stump and thrived. I took the reference photo with Ha-Ling as the back drop. Subsequent copious blooms provided enjoyment to hundreds of passers-by for more than a month.
Special thanks for the gift of the seeds goes out to an elderly neighbour whose family home has since succumbed to redevelopment in South Canmore. Poppies truly are the gift that keeps on giving.
