A sustainable alternative to the traditional red, plastic poppy. Unlike the plastic poppy, the seed paper poppy will decompose in your garden and bloom in the spring.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Remembrance Poppy in Canada, a lasting symbol of hope since the First World War.
In 1915, Canadian Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae wrote the poem “In Flanders Fields.”
In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie, In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders Fields.
