Spring Has Sprung!

There are pretty little patches of yellow wild flowers popping up everywhere! YAY! Spring is here!! I can't wait for the purple patches to come. (See above - that is how the hillsides will look pretty soon)

Even the Golden California Poppies are popping up - with the late rains this year - I am thinking it will be a BEAUTIFUL spring and summer FULL of glorious wild flowers! Gotta love that!

I can't wait to check out the dessert and mountain flowers - they will come next.

FUN FACTS: Golden poppies grow wild throughout California. Native American Indians used the poppies for food and oils. Try placing some on top of your next salad... beautiful!

I used to pick those and suck on the stems...that was a long time ago...I'll let you know when the desert flowers bloom...though it's not nearly so pretty as poppies.
