Red Poppies in Georgetown


While getting lost trying to find the office to get my Texan Driver's License.  Turned out that the office moved. Found out that the office was a block away from where we now live.  Oh well. At least we got to see the wild red poppies along the streets of Old Town Georgetown.

Seeds from poppies in Europe were sent to Georgetown right after World War 1.  An American serving in the Military sent them to his mother.  She planted them at her home which is now 507 E 7th Street.

From there, the birds, bees and people spread them down over the Old Town.
