California poppies are in full bloom and have inspired my Kblossoms nature inspired carnelian and orange agate jewelry designs above! The above orange poppies were taken at the Arcadia Arboretum where the recent rains have caused the poppy flowers to bloom bright orange in color! These poppies are so beautiful and vibrant brilliant orange color, reminding me of a scene from the Wizard of Oz! You can find flowering CA poppies in the Spring in late Feb to April in grassy open areas such as the grasslands of CA valleys, meadows and hillsides. The CA poppy meadows have the most impressive wildflower displays in the world! They love the sun and open their petals in brilliant orange color. You can find beautiful poppy fields in all over CA from Antelope Valley, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Bear Valley Colusa.
