Traditional World War I memorial poppies bloom along U.S. 78 in Walton County, the Moina Micheal Highway. Planted by the Georgia Department of Transportation in cooperation with the Georgia World War I Centennial Commission, the poppies commemorate long-time University of Georgia faculty member Moina Michael, who developed the idea of using red poppies to support veterans of World War I, and ultimately of all wars. Ms. Michael was from the nearby town of Good Hope in Walton County.
