Around Turlock – March 30

Poppies are in bloom around Turlock, as seen in this shot taken on Daubenberger Road.

According to the California Department of Parks and Recreation, poppies open up on nice days, but curl up if it’s windy and cold.

The California poppy, Eschscholzia Californica, became the official state flower of California on March 2, 1903. The bright orange flowers were called "copa de oro" (cup of gold) by early Spanish settlers.

Contrary to popular belief, there is no law specifically prohibiting people from picking poppies because they are the state flower. However, California Penal Code Section 384a requires written landowner permission to remove and sell plant material from land that a person does not own; removing or damaging plants from property that a person does not own without permission may constitute trespass and/or petty theft. Still, these laws do not prevent the collection of California poppies on private land by the landowner.
