After years of drought California is finally getting a relief. The hills are blooming and the poppies are breathtaking. People are traveling for hours just to see what they call the “super bloom”.
“All across the meadows, many poppies blossomed, and that were so hypnotic and brilliant in color they nearly dazzled Dorothy’s eyes. “Aren’t they beautiful?” the girl asked her companions, as she breathed in the spicy scent of the big, bright flowers.” ―The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900)
We love having the California poppy in AllMyLight collection. Simple but immediately recognizable, and also known as golden poppy or cup of gold, it’s a great gift to bring home from California.
