It’s spring time and I visited the poppy flower reserve in Antelope Valley, CA. It was beautiful and orange all around. As my dad says it’s like an ‘orange carpet.’ And truly it was an orange carpet ride. I’m writing this blog to showcase the vibrant pictures I took. I’ve lived in Southern California my whole life and can’t believe it was my first time visiting the poppy flowers.
I touched one of the flowers to get a texture feel. They are silky smooth. The whole time on our nature walk I wondered what does orange mean? The color evokes something in you. Bright vast orange colors bring up feelings of joy and creativity. It radiates warmth and happiness with a splash of emotional strength. All of which is felt in this sea of orangeness.
How could such a beautiful flower provoke such happiness? was it because it was a new place? Or can flowers incite joy just by being colorful? I’m curious if these beautiful poppy’s are here just for our viewing pleasure. Orange just might be my new favorite color.
