California Poppy Fields

Antelope Valley Reserve March 19th, 2017

Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve is a state-protected reserve of California, USA, harboring the most consistent blooms of California poppies, the state flower. 🌾

Bloom Status Update As of March 17th, the poppies have started blooming on the east half of the park! They suddenly exploded into color this week, and can even be seen from across the valley! Due to the late rains, we won't be getting a solid carpet of poppies across the park but the bloom is already better than we were expecting. It will likely be getting a little better over the next couple of weeks, with the peak spread out over late March/early April. Rain is in the forecast next week, which will help the bloom last at least through mid April, or longer if it doesn't get too hot.

Thanks for watching. 🌾 Find me on Instagram @iuvec
