It’s great having the spectacular spring “spring-ing.”
Wildflowers are out in abundance for many who like seeing these beauties in person.
We are so fortunate to have so many prime spots in Southern California to view these magnificent specimens.
Here are few of the reserves that are available for viewing and how lucky are we to have so many reserves and so close for viewing: Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve in Lancaster, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Diamond Valley Lake, Walker Canyon in Lake Elsinore.
The sightseers are harming the wildflowers by trampling or picking the wildflowers, and they are also walking off the paths, which are put in place to indicate, “Don’t go off the beaten path.”
These sightseers are showing no etiquette or concern for these precious flowers.
These wildflowers only bloom once a year, so let’s take advantage of their short time with us and respect them.
