This is a swatch of an English fabric by Parkertex which I call Poppy. Interesting how the scan shows the colours and texture in such rich detail. Very appropriate for yesterday's Remembrance Day. And remember we did. I was with my Dad (a 93 year old Canadain veteran) in Florida. I for the garden club show, he for the sun. He took to reciting In Flanders Field with a British accent a la Richard Burton at the cocktail hour. I reminded him that poet John McCrae would've spoke Canadian with a Guelph Ontario accent, if any accent at all. I confess I know this as Norma, my sales Co-ordinator, holding the fort back in Ontario, said she was late getting to work because the McCrae family home, now a museum is the next street over from where she lives and cars were lined up around the block to visit on Nov the 11th.
