Don't You Love Spring?
California poppy, Eschscholzia californica. Some people say San Diego doesn't have seasons. After all, what are seasons without snow? San Diego gets just cold enough to frost in some areas and snow in the hills. That's enough to provide a decent dormancy for peaches but not so cold that you can't grow bananas nearby! It's also cold enough to provide for a glorious burst of flowers in the Spring! I went hiking on Sunday and the hills back in Mission Trails Park near Poway were just covered with Poppies (2 species) and Lupine (3 species), making for an amazing display!
A few willing subjects are posing here.
