In New Ulm Cemetery the Poppies Grow

The new Poppy Garden in New Ulm’s City Cemetery is now in full bloom. Since November of 1918 the poppy has been a national symbol of remembrance for those who fought and died in World War 1. These bright red flowers overlook the cemetery’s Soldiers Rest section to the east, and the Doughboy Statue to the west. Poppies re-seed themselves so the garden should grow as the years go by.
