No Carpets of Orange, but Poppies Peak at State Reserve
Today park rangers announced that the state flower has peaked at California's most poppy-ulated area, the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve. But don't get too excited yet, they warned:
They do note that the owl's clover displays have been better than most year.
Beyond the reserve, there are still plenty of great spots in the desert for wildflower viewing; however, since wildflowers are hard to predict, make sure to keep up with the Theodore Payne Foundation's weekly wildflower hotline for the most accurate updates.
