Poppies...sleep...sleep...(6 posts)

Poppies...sleep...sleep...mr_spin

As if anyone needed a reason to ride in California, riding around this weekend, there were poppies and wildflowers everywhere. Anyone planning a riding vacation here should definitely try to be here in April. It's an amazing time of year. There were so many poppy fields I started trying to find the Emerald City. By the way, it's impossible to click your heels together when you are on a bike.

We've got to find Dorothy!

Where on earth did you see a decent wildflower display this year? At least here in the Ventura/L.A. county area, the hills are already parched because of the lack of rain this winter. The only poppies I've seen so far have been in peoples' gardens...

San Francisco Bay area has lots of poppies. I saw fields of them in the hills above Gilroy. They are starting to come in along Skyline in the Santa Cruz Mountains. I see little spots of them everywhere else.

The California poppy is the coolest looking flower ever.

"Young"? Who you calling "young", whippersnapper? I've got a good mind to thrash you with my AARP card... ;-)
