Throwback Thursday: California Poppies Close-Up!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

Pictured above is a small patch of California poppies.  Its native habitat includes California and extends to Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Sonora and northwest Baja California. The Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve is located in northern in Northern Los Angeles County.At the peak of the blooming season, orange flowers seem to cover all 1,745 acres  of the reserve.  Wikipedia

Usually a patch of lupines would be growing nearby.  

The two side by side make a lovely contrast.   However, we did not find them that year together.

When we were in the Burgundy region of France a few years ago, we found California poppies growing there also...

These lovely flowers became known as "California" poppies when the State deemed it its official state flower!

HI Ron and Alexandra Seigel - I always loved seeing images of  California Poppys and even better when I came upon them in person.  Spring is coming! As is the case in California, spring comes early in Sedona and all of Arizona.  It makes for the longest season of the year.  I love it. Happy Friday!

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® I am wishing for more rainfall, and that would encourage more poppies, mustard and lupines along with other greenery.  I also love spring...A

Kat Palmiotti They are for me too.  I always love discovering poppies.  One of our neighbors grew some, and it was a delight to see them. A

Thomas J. Nelson, REALTOR ® e-Pro CRS RCS-D Vets they are fun to look at, and I don't pick them...no warning needed.  In my mind, they do not belong in a vase.  A

Oh it was a childhood "trauma" reflection😂, I wasn't warning you, just remembering almost getting in a lot of trouble as a kid as stooped over one day in a park to pick some for my mom and to my surprise was scolded, then educated by her instead.

California poppies and lupines are among my favorite of flowers in this state.  I will never forget a very large field of lupines in Yosemite's high country.  I have a picture I took of my mother in the midst of them, way back in 1967.

Thanks for sharing. I learned what the California State flower is. Maryland is the Black Eyed Susan.
