California Poppies in Bloom!

The California poppies have been in bloom for around a week. They will be in bloom for just a few weeks, then like the Tibetan mandala will be no more. We visited Antelope Valley with the poppy reserve, but the flowers also grow outside of the reserve, along the side of the road for instance. So lovely!

Here's information about the California Poppy from Wikipedia:

Eschscholzia californica (California poppyCalifornian poppy, golden poppyCalifornia sunlightcup of gold) is a species of flowering plant in the Papaveraceae familynative to the United States and Mexico. It is an ornamental plant and it is used medicinally and in cooking, and it became the official state flower of California in 1903.

If you want to visit the reserve, do it soon, because the flowers will be gone in 3 weeks or so.
