Poppies photo by Lee Lageschulte

These are spectacular, aren't they? I've never seen this variety before, but Lee photographed them in Shoreline.

Just a reminder - when you see the veterans sitting at card tables at Fred Meyer with a box of paper poppies - buy one from them. They are members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, selling "Buddy Poppies" which honor fallen comrades. The poppies are their biggest fundraiser of the year, keeping their organization going.

Or, heck, stop and talk to them. Maybe they'll tell you a few war stories. You might learn something you didn't know.
