The poppy is the state flower of California, and a symbol of the good life. We have an ideal climate here. There is a lot to be thankful for in the way of natural resources and mild weather, not to mention beautiful scenery.
What could be more fitting than a celebration of the season that includes poppy portraits? These flowers are commonly seen along the side of the road, whether a single lane winding through the foothills or a massive interstate freeway. The poppy also shows up in fields, vacant lots, and sidewalk cracks.
A pretty determined survivor, it is among the first spring flowers to arrive. Hooray for Spring. Hooray for the California Poppy.
