Photo - California Poppy (Eschscholzia californica)

Here is our state flower, the California Poppy.
This wonderful annual pops up every March all over the state,
sets seeds by the end of April and then dies when the first
heat of May arrives.  California Poppies will
grow in almost any soil, they just need some sun
and a little Winter rain.
