This is the opening of the world famous poem In Flanders Fields written by famous Guelphite Colonel John McCrae. John's birthplace, McCrae House, is a National Historic Site located on Water Street. Exhibitions interpret the life of John McCrae, a world-renowned doctor and soldier.

This poppy grew in my garden.
