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!
