Poppy Explosion

California poppy explosion

California poppies are on fire. The state flower, Eschsholtzia californica, brightens California hillsides each spring in an explosion of gold, and the areas around our Oakdale office are no exception. Did you know that April 6 is California Poppy Day, and a whole Poppy Week is celebrated from May 13–18? We thought these photos were a fitting way to cap off Poppy Week in the Golden State.
