The Fields Are Alive With Color!
Hello Everybody! Such a beautiful Spring Day here!
Too nice to let the blues get us down!
Look at all the pretty poppies! As you may or may not be aware, We are coming at you from
The Mojave Desert…in Southern California. These are the State Flower, The Golden Poppy.
We took these pics just a week ago; quite a surprising show of beautiful flowers considering the
drought crisis we currently find ourselves in here. March brought a bit of rain. It appears it was just
in time to be able to bring the thickest, most vibrant fields-full we’ve seen in years! Such a treat!
AND…our local Annual Poppy Festival takes place this weekend! Sometimes the Festival happens but the
Poppies forget to show up! Or The Poppies show up but not exactly in the locale of the Poppy Reserve,
instead opting to grow a bit further out to the north-west — which causes the throngs of
tourists to be a bit disappointed in the few
flowers actually here…that happens! Hey! We are NOT going to dictate to Mother Nature, ok!
BUT NOT THIS TIME, KIDS!!!
If you happen to be nearby, stop by the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve
or in to Lancaster’s Poppy Festival
this weekend APRIL 26 – 27! Don’t Forget Your Cameras!
