The California Poppy is our state flower. The poppies are very delicate - almost tissue paper like, and they bloom a single flower to a stem. California Poppies vary in color from yellow to a vibrant orange. When I first noticed them blooming this spring, they felt like smiling faces greeting me on my way to work. Quite a cheery site! I looked up some information when I painted this page, and I was surprised to learn that April 6 is designated as California Poppy Day -- that is the day before my wedding anniversary. Interesting!
