Wordless Wednesday! A Sea of Poppies in the Heart of Chicago!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Teri Ellis at Homes Arizona Real Estate LLC

I have to tell you what this is about! While we were in Chicago attending our grandson's graduation from the naval academy, I took my camera - duh! As we walked the streets of Chicago and took the boat out to see the skyline, and rode the water taxi, I took a gazillion photos. This is one I plan to upload on Flickr. This is just one of about five photos of the flowers. I LOVE tulips and poppies. Enjoy!

Great photo.  I like tulips.  But what was the Navyu doing holding a graduation in the middle of the continent?

Now I see.  The Rickover Naval Academy is a military themed high school....sounds really good.  It's named for a great man.

Jim, the place my grandson attended was the Great Lakes Naval Academy, just north of Chicago. It was an awesome experience to see the show the graduates demonstrated. ;-)

Lori, ummmmm, let me think? Yep, probably, but I love the many colors, and the red and yellow together. ;-)

Merry Christmas
