With people stuck at home, the famous California poppies got a break and are blooming beautifully

The quarantine has allowed California poppies to grow beautifully to their max without people stomping on them.

Its spring time, which means the California poppies are in full bloom. These wildflowers are one of the main attractions in California during this time.

 



 

 

Most notably the bright orange poppy blooms In Walker Canyon and Antelope Canyon. Thousands of people visit the parks everyday just to take a look at these beauties blooming.

 



 

 

Although we did not see a super bloom this year the hills are still covered in beautiful, vibrant flowers.
If you are interested, you can see the flowers via live cam set up by the California Department of Parks and Recreation. This is being done for years. Its not exclusive to the quarantine period only.

 



 

 

What’s different this year is that there are no people. The poppy blooms are a popular destination for Instagram users trying to get that perfect shot. Most of them ignore the signs prohibiting them from going off the trail in the flowers and end up stomping and killing many. Year after year, this would end with trampled poppies. Consequently, fewer poppies bloom the next year.

 



 

 

This time around these vibrant flowers are enjoying their life without being stomped to death. That doesn't mean people aren't trying, though. The valleys are closed, but there are people sneaking in to either take pictures or just see the flowers. Still, it is better than thousands of visitors every year.

 



 

 

Since they are safe this year, we will be able to see their beauty next spring as well.
