First Day of Spring-California Poppy

Its raining here cats and dogs at bulldog travels.  So, I thought I would herald spring by sharing some photos of our famous California Poppy.  Our state flower “pops” up everywhere in early spring and is a joy to see from the side of the freeway or climbing up the entire side of a hill or mountain.  Does anyone else have a state or national flower that represents where they live like the California Poppy?

“All the spring may be hidden in the single bud, and the low ground nest of the lark may hold the joy that is to herald the feet of many rose-red dawns.”

-Oscar Wilde

  1. Love your header photo. The poppies are so pretty and out in full force here in Arizona. When we called Colorado home, I loved the state flower, the columbine, when it would dot the hillside in various colors. So pretty!

  2. Yellow poppies. How nice. “Ours” in France and I imagine Europe, are red.
    A flower symbol? The fleur de Lys (lilly?) was the symbol of the French monarchy and France for more than a millenium.
    But I like yellow poppies. Very original.
