proof of global warming

Poppies should not be blooming for another two to three months.

 

We had the wettest October I can ever remember and a cold, cold November. But the last week has been squarely in the 70s and I think the poppies got confused.

 

For people outside of California, poppies are our state flower and can make roadsides and hillsides glow orange in the spring time. But if you pick them (which is illegal) they wilt immediately.
