Brief and Glorious History of the Poppy Flowers

Following WWI, poppies thrived in Flanders Fields thanks to lime-rich rubble. Common poppy seeds can lay dormant for decades and then show up when you least expect it, symbolizing remembrance.The opium poppy, a source of morphine, is featured on the Royal College of Anaesthetists coat of arms. Poppy seed snacks? Great on a bagel , but proceed with caution—they could lead to false drug test results... don't end up like Eliane on Seinfeld and miss that trip to Africa with J. Peterman!
