Notes: This postcard showing wild California poppies comes from a postcard book of wildflowers.  I know this because I have the exact same book, which I purchased off of Amazon a number of years ago.  This poppy, Eschscholzia californica, is the state flower of California. The Antelope Valley California Poppy Preserve is located in northern Los Angeles county, and has poppies covering much of its 1,745 acres (706 ha).  The flower's natural habitat includes much of the western United States, along with northwestern Baja California in Mexico.  

OOPS!  Guess I forgot to click the "Publish" button for this post. Sorry it's late!  Yeah, like anyone noticed.
