Letter: Wildflowers gone from TFN streets


Where have all the poppies gone on the TFN streets? The poppies are glorious this year, amongst the other wildflowers along the boulevards.

It was disheartening to see the yearly display mowed down last week, especially during the 75th D-Day anniversary. Crimson poppies grow at this time of year all over France.

The original thought of planting wildflowers along the TFN roadways was so unique. Phoning the TFN land division, they were going to look into the reason but it would have been better to wait until the blooms finished for the season as it gave great pleasure for all.

There are still flowers left on Canoe Pass Boulevard, so enjoy while they last.
