Imperial Beach's "Hidden Gems" by Elizabeth French Briseno

This week's gem isn't so hidden it is a part of the lovely welcome mat of flowers at the entrance to the Tijuana Estuary. The schscholzia californica (California poppy) is a species of flowering plant in the family Papaveraceae, native to the United States and Mexico, and the official state flower of California.

Did you know these beauties close their petals at night and on cloudy days?

Happy April!
