March 3rd, 2012 at the Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden in Claremont, California. While the rest of the country is experiencing extreme weather, we are having an early Spring; and the local wildflowers are starting to show up. The Poppy is the State Flower of California and I think it’s illegal to disturb them in any way. Good thing it ain’t unlawful to photograph them. Yet.

The high temp today, March 3, is 80 F (26 C), and it’s been predicted to be even warmer tomorrow. Gotta love Southern California!

    I love these flowers too….had them self seeding in our garden for a few years and enjoyed their happy yellow colour and tenacity to spring up in the summer heat….
