Much of California’s poppy population is currently displaying an impressive bloom. But fear not, as the flowers are well protected during this Corona Virus pandemic – apparently to prevent the flowers from being exposed to the virus. Because the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve is practicing “social distancing” as it is closed to the public. See: Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve State Natural Reserve, at: http://parks.ca.gov/?page_id=627.
But..., no worries. Because you can watch the live stream of the Antelope Valley bloom:
